Ferrari Test Driver Says Alonso Better Than Schumi

Interviewed by Spanish newspaper El Mundo, Marc Gene gives his views on whether Fernando Alonso gets preferential treatment over Felipe Massa.

"I can confirm 100 percent that the two, both Felipe and Fernando, have the same material at their disposal, If Fernando's results are better, it's because he's at a higher level." states Gene

The long time Ferrari tester has worked with seven times world champion Michael Schumacher and former world champions Jacques Villeneuve and Kimi Raikkonen. Genes goes on to say just how high he rates Alonso.

"I have worked with World Champions like Michael Schumacher, Villeneuve and Raikkonen - and Fernando is the one that impressed me most,"

"Before he came to Ferrari, I had great expectations of him. Now that I've seen and observed and worked with him, I can say that my expectations have been exceeded." added the veteran test driver.

Well what can I say, we have Gene, who happens to be Spanish, talking about a Spaniard to a Spanish newspaper... Not saying anything , just saying. When doing the sidebar videos came up with this classic of Fernando in something other than a formula one car. His face, pure hilarious.
