Cape Town - Flavio Briatore has said that Fernando Alonso "must" be driving for either Ferrari or Mercedes next season.
"In football, there are ten attractive clubs in Europe. Messi would have a much wider choice. In Formula 1 you can only win with three teams."
Briatore then pointed the finger at Ron Dennis, who recently sold his shares in McLaren, for his role in the position that Alonso now finds himself in. He added: "This is Ron Dennis' fault. He instigated the problem at McLaren in 2007, and Mercedes had nothing to do with it at the time."
