As: Alonso believes it could be difficult for Rossi to win this year

In a lengthy interview with As, Ferrari F1 driver Fernando Alonso says that he sees Valentino Rossi’s chances of winning the MotoGP World title in his first year with Ducati as complicated. “MotoGP is very open, Valentino will find it difficult with Lorenzo, the Hondas are strong with Stoner, Pedrosa… But it’s clear it’ll be between Lorenzo, Stoner, Pedrosa and Rossi,” said the Spaniard.

With regards to a possible showdown against Rossi on two wheels, Alonso responded: “It could happen one day… Perhaps.”
