Fernando Alonso is still confident that all chances open for 2012 Formula 1 title. The final spell of the this season, defending world champion Sebastian Vettel attacked previous leader Alonso and now he lead by 6 points ahead of him.
Sebastian Vettel wins four races in this season and especially he achieved 75 points in last three races. Unfortunate Alonso’s double retirements gives big opportunity for Vettel.
“My situation is quite good” Alonso said.
“You could say it’s the second best situation as we are almost on the same points total as Vettel, with four races to go and there is every possibility open for the championship,” he added.
“If we had been offered this situation back in February, we would have signed for it! And again, in July, August or even September, we would have signed. We are in the situation that we plan to fight for the championship all the way to the end.
“It’s true that in the last few races, Red Bull has been very strong and quick, but we have seen all year that there have been ups and downs for everybody, so we need to improve our situation and our level of competitiveness and try to catch them.”
“As for my motivation, it is better than ever and not just me, the whole team is very motivated, everyone in the team wants this championship. We have struggled all year with our car, especially in the first part of the season and now with four races to go, we are going on full attack for the last month with everyone in the team so focused.”
“I think it will be a battle of packages: everyone will have his own strong points and weak points,” he added.
“At the moment we have seen that Red Bull maybe has the fastest car, especially on Saturday. They will try and make the most of this strong point and we will try to use our strong points. It is a matter of pushing everything to the limits now; the car development, the strategy and the approach to the weekends, but that is no different in fact to what we have been doing all year.”
The Spaniard added “We were leading the championship up until Korea thanks to our consistency and through avoiding making mistakes. We have produced sixteen perfect races and now we must produce another four and if we do that, we will be very close to winning the championship.”
