London, Jan 26 (ANI): Ferrari star Fernando Alonso has vowed to match one of the greatest racing achievements of former Ferrari champion and Formula One legend Michael Schumacher, who is currently in a coma following a near-fatal skiing accident.

The car with which Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen will fly the Scuderia Ferrari flag in this years Formula 1 World Championship will be called the F14-T Unveiled: The new Ferrari F14-T, the report added. (ANI)
