MONTREAL, Canada - Fernando Alonso has sent a positive and optimistic message to his and Ferrari fans in general by saying he plans to win a third Formula 1 Drivers' title before retirement.

The 32-year-old, widely regarded as the finest racing driver of his generation, said he might be happy with two titles but remained hungry for more - that despite Ferrari's struggle to keep pace with Mercedes so far in 2014 and Red Bull in recent seasons.


"We're still hungry for success, waiting for our opportunity to become champions," he said. "This is the main goal and you don't think of retiring until you get some satisfaction. It's something I'm working for and hoping for.

"It's not that I'm not happy with two but a third puts you in a list of very important names."

He also said he was not happy with the 2014 generation of turbo/hybrid F1 cars.

"The new F1 cars," he said, "are heavier, slower, (more) difficult to understand what the car is doing - and you cannot push all through the race."
