Ferrari's Fernando Alonso says he is highly motivated by the opportunity to become the first man to win the Monaco Grand Prix for three different teams.

The Spaniard triumphed in Monte Carlo for Renault in 2006 and McLaren in 2007 and is hopeful of completing a unique treble on Sunday, with Alonso 4.33to win the race.

"I can be the first man to win for three different teams, so it is for sure a good motivation," Alonso revealed.

Alonso, having won two of the last three races this season, is full of confidence for Monaco after finishing on the podium in both 2011 and 2012.

He added: "We did two podiums in the last two years, so it should be good for us to be quite competitive and to have a good result."

Alonso is 1.61 to complete a hat-trick of podiums on Sunday, with Ferrari team-mate Felipe Massa 5.00 to secure a top-three position.

However, Alonso is wary of the pace of Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, one of whom has been on pole position in each of the last three Grands Prix.

"We know Mercedes will be strong," Alonso added. "If they are on pole position, maybe they are favourites here, but we cannot forget our main target, which is the championship."

Hamilton is 4.33 to win the Monaco Grand Prix for the second time in his career, with Rosberg, who was fastest in Thursday's first practice session, 5.00.
