Ferrari says Vettel and Alonso could co-exist as team-mates

Published

on

Ferrari team Principal Stefano Domenicali says that double time world champions Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel could coexist perfectly at Ferrari.

Sebastian Vettel, who has been linked with a move to Ferrari when his deal with Red Bull expires at the end of 2013, and Alonso are fighting to become the youngest ever triple-time champion this season.

“I think they are both intelligent guys and they could easily coexist together,” Domenicali he told the official Ferrari website through a joint interview with F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone.

“That wouldn’t be a problem: both are drivers who are always looking for a new challenge and to be in the same team would be a new and big challenge,”

“They would both think they can bear the other one, as they are sure of themselves and Stefano would do what was required to so that they were treated equally.” he said.

“It would be a case of doing what I did at Brabham in 1979 with Niki Lauda and Nelson Piquet. I told them, ‘guys it’s simple: whichever one of you is quickest is the team number one.'”

“Alonso is the fastest driver of all, I’m sure of that and it’s been like that since testing at the start of the year, despite the fact our car was definitely not very quick,” he added.

“Now we have improved it, even if we are not yet at the level we want to be. The cars are very close and we are witnessing a really incredible championship which for the fans is a real spectacle.”
