Schumacher gold when as the man to beat and had the five years before that with the Ferrari Formula 1 dominated. The first world championship, which Alonso as his second title, together with Renault conquered, was also a very emotional moment.
“It is difficult to select one but if I have someone really should call it is absolutely Michael,” said Alonso, according to ‘Crash.net’. “Not because of a specific reason but because Michael at that time, the Formula 1 dominated.”
“When you’re in the karting driving then you see Michael win, when you are in a different category of driving then you see Michael win, and eventually you can find yourself in a situation where you wheel-to-wheel with him to the fight.”
