Vettel took another win at the Buddh circuit in Indian GP on Sunday and increased his lead over Alonso to 13 points with three races to go in the F1 Championship but Fernando Alonso believes he can still win. He wants Ferrari to take a step forward in order to be able to fight Red Bull and not just limit the damage in the remaining races – see the Indian GP video highlights and short interview with Alonso.
The Spaniard was encouraged by his race pace in India after being able to beat Mark Webber and stay relatively close to Vettel.
“I think it is good news for us seeing that we could fight Red Bull in the race,” he said.
“Nothing changed in one race,” said Alonso about his championship hopes ahead next weekend’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. “There are 75 points and we are 13 behind and we know we need to improve. “We are not fast enough, especially on Saturday, but we can improve the situation in Abu Dhabi or USA”
“I think we need to bring some new parts to Abu Dhabi and hopefully improve a little bit the competitiveness of the car and get closer to Red Bulls on Saturday and hopefully Sunday as well,” he said.
“There are three races remaining and the championship is the main target. We need to recover some points. It would be nice to finish in front of Seb there and if we win even better. For that we need to make a step forward as at the moment we are not able to win.”
