Robert Kubica appreciate Alonso above Vettel

Robert Kubica appreciate Alonso above Vettel

In his time Fernando Alonso to question who he thinks is the best racer of modern Formula 1, without hesitation, replied "Robert Kubica". In early 2011 due to serious injuries sustained in the accident at the rally route, talented pole was forced to leave F1 after a long period of rehabilitation to go to the rally, but still with Alonso have developed good friendships.

During an interview with Italian TV station Sky Sport 24 Kubica asked what, in his opinion, the difference between Alonso and Sebastian Vettel, after all, four-time world champion, apparently, next year will replace the famous Spaniard in the composition of the Ferrari.

"Alonso is the only driver who can get results even for the wheel is not such a competitive car, " said Robert. - Vettel is able only when it has the best machine.

In the Formula 1 is very high competition, and victory is rarely easy, but in Ferrari sometimes think that they can win all the races. However it is not simple, even if the Scuderia is such an amazing driver, Fernando Alonso. For me he remains a unique pilot, one of those who are able to achieve the best results possible. Perhaps he is the only one who knows how to do it, not even with the best machine."

There are many rumors, as will be further career Spaniard, however, Kubica believes that it would be a mistake, if Alonso will miss the season "If Fernando will not be released at the start of the championship, it will be a big loss. Formula 1 can not afford to lose such a pilot, and I don't think it will happen, but Alonso need to take a new challenge.

I remember when he moved to Ferrari, I was very happy to take on a new challenge, but even after a few seasons he failed to win the title. Few people understand how difficult it is in the championship four or five teams that are fighting for the victory in the championship, and is eight or ten riders capable of winning Grands Prix. The rivalry is very sharp and very hard to put together everything you need for victory."
