Alonso happy with Ferrari team

12:53 pm on 12 March 2010

Formula One driver Fernando Alonso says he's in a good place with his new Ferrari team heading into this weekend's first race of the season in Bahrain.

The Spaniard has been keen to play down expectations of winning another championship and says it will take 10 months of hard work to secure a third world title.

But Alonso has been more than happy to talk about how at home he feels with the Ferrari team and fellow driver Felipe Massa.

Alonso says he and Massa have spent a lot of time working on the F10 Ferrari car together and get along well.

Team relations obviously mean a lot to the Spanish driver after having a falling out with his fellow McLaren team mate Lewis Hamilton in 2007.
