Fernando Alonso has responded to comments that Luca di Montezemolo made earlier last week when he claimed Sebastian Vettel would one day drive for Ferrari.

"I'm not afraid of Vettel," he said. "Should he come to Ferrari one day it won't be a problem, I have nothing to say on the matter. I'm not afraid to face any team-mate, I've never feared any of them.

"None of my team-mates have ever finished a season with more points than I have, so I don't see why I should be afraid of anyone."

He added he was confident Ferrari would compete with Red Bull and McLaren in 2011. "I have no doubts that next year Ferrari will build the car that I want."
