Schumacher says Ferrari are in best shape

Michael Schumacher says Ferrari are the team in the best shape for the start of the Formula One season as testing comes to a close.

The 41-year-old, who will drive for Mercedes this year after three years in retirement, says Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso look the target.

He also backtracked on earlier remarks that his Mercedes team could probably not win the first race.

At testing in Barcelona he was more than a second slower than Fernando Alonso's Ferrari.

41-year-old Schumacher won five of his record seven world titles for Ferrari.

The first round is in Bahrain in a fortnight.
