Alonso 'just the best' - Weber

"For me at the moment he (Alonso) is just the best," said Willi Weber.

Apr.15 (GMM) Fernando Alonso is the best driver in Formula One today.

That is the claim of Willi Weber, the former manager of F1's great Michael Schumacher, the seven time world champion and winner of a record 91 Grands Prix.

Sebastian Vettel might be the reigning triple world champion, but two-time title winner and Spaniard Alonso is better, Weber told sportradio360.de.

"He's consistent, he's a driver who doesn't talk much, he's always on the pace and makes the best of everything, in every situation, whether inside or outside of the car.

"For me at the moment he's just the best," added Weber.

Once nicknamed 'Mr 20 Percent', Weber said he also rates Vettel but advises the German to resist the temptation to follow Schumacher and Alonso to Ferrari.

"Right where he is he has the best team, the best car. I don't know where he wants to go but I could not advise him to do anything other than extend his contract by ten years," he added.
