Two-time world champion Fernando Alonso says he is arriving at the Ferrari team at the best moment of his career.
The Spaniard will be joining the historic Maranello-based squad next year after two disappointing years at the Renault team.
He is replacing Kimi Raikkonen as Felipe Massa's team-mate and the team is counting on him to revive its fortunes after a poor 2009 season.
Alonso says he could not be joining Ferrari at a better time.
"I'm really looking forward to the start of next year," Alonso said during a Cajastur event in Asturias on Monday.
"I'm joining the best team in the world, Ferrari, and I'm arriving at the best moment of my career. Right now I feel like I've never felt before. I think I'm at my best moment as a driver and as a person.
"I hope that joining Ferrari means winning titles to share with Asturias and Spain."
