'Alonso is even more perfect than Schu'

Fernando Alonso may only have two World titles to Michael Schumacher's seven but Felipe Massa reckons his current team-mate is "more complete."

Massa has partnered three World Champions during his eight years at Ferrari; first teaming up with Schumacher then Kimi Raikkonen and finally Alonso.

And although on paper Schumacher is the most successful of the trio with his seven Drivers' titles and his 91 race victories, Massa rates Alonso above the German.

"I've always had very strong team-mates," he said in an interview with Sky Sports F1.

"I always learnt that you need to be perfect because if you're not perfect they will be in front of you.

"For sure I've had some tough times as well with strong team-mates. The one was suffering more [against] was Alonso. I think maybe he's more complete.

"Schumacher was very, very good. He was amazing and a very complete driver as well. But I think maybe Alonso is even more perfect."
