Alonso: -Rossi will struggle to win

Rossi will struggle to win - Alonso
12 February 2006 F1racing.net

F1 champion Fernando Alonso thinks that Valentino Rossi will struggle to win in Formula One, if he does make the much hyped switch from MotoGP. When asked by the Cadena SER radio station if he thought Rossi could win in F1 Alonso replied, "No, I don't think so."

"It's like if I would try racing motorbikes," Alonso added. I could participate, have fun but I could never beat the likes of Pedrosa. I couldn't beat people that started racing mini-bikes when they were only a few years old."

Alonso has been setting the pace in winter testing and added that he sees Michael Schumacher being a major threat in 2006.

I don't think he's worried yet but you have to consider the possibility that Rossi will be a force in F1. He has unbelievable talent and has proven he can drive in tests. If he can get some proficiency with the car he'll be unbeatable again.
