Alonso: I’m fastest overall driver in F1

Double-time world champion, Fernando Alonso says that, he is still the best driver in Formula 1 overall and claims he could beat anyone in the same machine.

The Spaniard has two titles to his name having claimed back-to-back success with Renault in 2005 and again 2006, the 35-year-old still believes that he is the best overall driver and is confident that he can win the drivers title for a third time.

“I always feel confident about beating anyone,” he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports F1.

“I don’t believe that I’m better than anyone on pure speed in qualifying, I don’t think I’m better than anyone in wet conditions, dry conditions, qualifying, race.

“But if you put me in the same car at the same moment and same track as anyone. I think that I will beat them. Maybe I’m not best of all sections, but overall I will beat them,” he said.

“Right now I don’t think that we are enjoying driving as much as we should do. We cannot be seven or eight seconds slower than 10 years ago. This is not fun to drive,” he added.

“You are always saving – saving tyres, saving fuel, saving batteries – it is the opposite of our instinct. I hope next year it returns to a more normal driving style.”
