Two-time World Champion Fernando Alonso says he is arriving at the Ferrari team at the best moment of his career. The Spaniard will be joining the historic Maranello-based squad next year after two disappointing years at the Renault team. He is replacing Kimi Raikkonen as Felipe Massa's teammate and the team is counting on him to revive its fortunes after a poor 2009 season.
Alonso says he could not be joining Ferrari at a better time. "I'm really looking forward to the start of next year," Alonso said during a Cajastur event in Asturias on Monday.
"I'm joining the best team in the world, Ferrari, and I'm arriving at the best moment of my career. Right now I feel like I've never felt before. I think I'm at my best moment as a driver and as a person. I hope that joining Ferrari means winning titles to share with Asturias and Spain."
