Ferrari president ironic about the return of the German, but in Mercedes: “I was to pay him back the urge to run.” Then on Alonso: “It’s a real man team, more than Raikkonen was great. Who am afraid more of Hamilton-Button or Brawn-Schumacher? None”
FIORANO, 18 December 2009 – The Siamese twins torment Luca di Montezemolo. Last year, the same brother Raikkonen, the one in 2009 had “taken over” the most talented Finn who first year at Ferrari was able to take the world title, had disappointed a lot ‘. Now twinned with Michael Schumacher (who “swore at Monza: Ferrari is my family, I’ll stay for life”), “as the Prancing Horse has to offer him a car wants to run with the Mercedes.” “It’s extraordinary story of the twins,” said Ferrari president, with the pleasure of taking off a sassolone the shoe in the traditional Christmas dinner for the exchange of greetings with reporters. As with Kimi wrong, even with Michael (which he tries in vain to call during dinner) chooses the road of irony.

The Renault driver has said he hoped to climb the podium in any of the races remaining. “This year I see no reason to be optimistic for the rest of the championship and hopefully a podium or win, it is still possible,” said Alonso.
Cree that Button will be champion
Fernando Alonso believes Jenson Button is still the most favorite to be World Champion at the end of the season, although his Brawn is not as superior to other cars.
Button once had a world of difference to the front of Sebastian Vettel on 32 points after winning six of seven races of the Formula 1 world. Now, 18.5 points between them since the pilot Brawn has failed to finish either of the last three races over the fifth position.
Fernando Alonso suffered a similar situation three years ago, when he won six of the first nine races and had a difference of 25 points over Michael Schumacher. The German Ferrari’s back and began to improve, although in the end Alonso added his second consecutive title.
The Spanish believed that Button has a strong position and that the title will be difficult to escape it, unless Vettel wins all the races remaining.
