Alonso 'hungry for victories'

Alonso 'hungry for victories'

Despite having two Drivers' Championship titles to his name, Fernando Alonso insists that is "not enough".

Winning back-to-back titles with Renault in 2005 and 2006 many expected Alonso would kick especially after joining Ferrari in 2010.

However, the Spaniard has fallen short of the mark three times, losing out to Sebastian Vettel in 2010, 2012 and again last year.

This year, though, the 32-year-old is determined to get back to winning ways.

"If you ask me this question in 10 years' time I will tell you less, because two Championships are more than I could dream," he told CNN.

"If you ask me right now and I am in a middle of a competition, I am hungry for victories; hungry for success - I will tell you that two Championships are not enough."

Alonso, though, will have more than just Vettel to overcome this season as Ferrari have brought in Kimi Raikkonen to spur on their challenge.

"I think he's very talented so that is a huge help and a huge motivation for myself first and also for the team, because the team knows it has to deliver a good car because Kimi will deliver a good result," Alonso said.

"I know I need to deliver my best, if not I cannot be in front of Kimi, so that is only good and positive news for Ferrari."
