Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone is eager for a change at the top of the pecking order this season, with the 82-year-old arguing that 'it wouldn't be too bad' for the sport if Fernando Alonso wins the 2013 title. The Spaniard has not claimed honours since 2006, while Ferrari is searching for its first Constructors' crown since 2008.
Following Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull's three-year run of championship success, Ecclestone says a new leader would be be positive, highlighting Ferrari in particular.
"I explained that Vettel is a true champion, but that he’s still young and can only improve in terms of being a character in the sport and in terms of his personality," Ecclestone told daily Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport. "As for Alonso, after three years of dominance by Red Bull it wouldn’t be too bad a thing if we were to have a change at the top of the sport, perhaps with Ferrari leading the way again."
After 11 seasons, Alonso has two Drivers' titles to his name. In 2012, Sebastian Vettel joined the illustrious group of triple World Champions alongside Jack Brabham, Sir Jackie Stewart, Niki Lauda, Nelson Piquet and Ayrton Senna. Alain Prost, Juan Manuel Fangio, Michael Schumacher are ahead on four, five and seven titles respectively.
