Two time world champion Fernando Alonso admits that it will be difficult to match Michael Schumacher's haul of seven titles.

Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso had admitted that it will be very difficult to beat Michael Schumacher's five successive World Championship wins.

The 30-year-old has two world titles to his name, equalling Schumacher's title haul at the same age.

Schumacher went on to win a further five titles in successive seasons for Ferrari though and Alonso faces a big task to match the feat.

The Spaniard said: "These days F1 is so competitive, so close. It is very difficult to see a dominant period as Ferrari had with Michael, so seven will be a record that will stay for many, many years."

Alonso is currently fourth in the World Drivers' Championship, 86 points behind leader and reigning champion Sebastian Vettel.
