Alonso believes he has driven better this year than at any time in his career, including his title-winning seasons with Renault in 2005-6. He said: “Last year and this year have perhaps been the best years for me. This is the first time everyone believes in my performance and even that I can achieve the world championship. This year is quite amazing for me.”

Asked if he thinks that Red Bull is stronger than Ferrari, he said: “It is not that I think, it is a fact. They have dominated last few races, maybe similar to last year, however in this year we are not 100 points behind, only 10.”

“I truly believe we can win,” he added that despite Ferrari’s performance as he still believes he could win the championship
