Di Montezemolo, 65, said 31-year-old Spaniard Alonso, who narrowly lost out to Red Bull's Vettel in this year's championship despite having an inferior car, was a powerful mix of the good qualities of two great Ferrari champions - Niki Lauda and Michael Schumacher. "Niki was very intelligent in the race and the first driver to be closer to the team, details, working even in the night," he said. "Michael was, for me, a war machine in the race because he was in condition to do 60 laps like qualifying. "Fernando is a good mix between the two. He is very intelligent. He knows when to push, how to save the tyres, when to attack, super intelligent and super quick, too. "It is difficult to make comparisons (across different eras) but he is right at the top. But I'm very happy with Fernando. He is a key member of the team." . . . BBC F1
