Alonso: Nothing beats Ferrari

Fernando Alonso says there is no team above Ferrari and vows he will stick with the Scuderia for the remainder of his F1 career
Fernando Alonso has reiterated that he plans to finish his F1 career with Ferrari – insisting that there is nothing above the Maranello-based team.

The Spaniard has been in contention for the title in each of his three seasons with the team and has a deal that runs through to 2016, having previously raced for Minardi, Renault and McLaren.

Alonso had made no secret of his desire to stick with Ferrari in future and, when quizzed on the matter in a Twitter Q&A, the 31-year-old said he couldn't imagine racing for another F1 team.

“Yes, that's what I'm going to do,” he replied when asked if Ferrari would be his final F1 team. “It's the best team in the world, there's nothing above Ferrari.”

While Alonso plans to stick with Ferrari until the end of his F1 career, he didn't rule out racing elsewhere once his time on the grid comes to an end.

“That's something I haven't decided on yet,” he said. “It depends on how I feel when the moment comes and my personal situation.

“What I am sure about is that if I continue racing, it will be more for fun than for anything else. But we'll see about that! There's plenty of F1 life still in me!”

Alonso 4x drivers title? Maybe. Webber winning this year's title? No chance! Just face the facts he's not as good as Seb, it'll be 5 years in a row he's beaten by Vettel mark my word, no pun intended hahahahahaha.
