Fernando Alonso insists that he and his new Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen can work together to make the Italian outfit championship contenders once again.

Fernando Alonso has hinted that his friendly competition with the returning Kimi Raikkonen will help Ferrari become title contenders again.

Raikkonen has rejoined the Italian outfit to race alongside Alonso for the 2014 season - the first time in six decades that two world champions have been Ferrari teammates.

"There is not any way of preparing anything, or any way to answer the question straight away, but we will follow wherever the team priority is and we will try to do our best to win both Championships and bring back to Ferrari some of the success Ferrari had in the past," Alonso told reporters.

"The best way to achieve that is to race each other at 100 per cent level at every race and try to always bring back the points to the team and to ourselves.

"To do that, we need to work in perfect harmony and follow what the team priority is and the team will tell us."

Ferrari have not won a constructors' title since 2008, with Red Bull victors in each of the last three years.
