Rio de Janeiro, Sep 14 (IANS) Brazilian driver Felipe Massa has described Ferrari teammate Fernando Alonso as the toughest opponent in his 10-year Formula One career.
“I’ve always had strong teammates but in the past few years the challenge has been even greater,” Massa said Thursday, reports Xinhua.
“He (Alonso) is the most difficult driver I have come up against. Lewis Hamilton has also been a strong competitor as have Kimi Raikkonen and Michael Schumacher.”
