Formula 1 title contender Fernando Alonso says that he would not be surprised by Red Bull domination and they are set top fastest in Friday second practice session for US Grand Prix.

Alonso currently second on the drivers’ championship, 10 points behind his main rival Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel. The German took quickest lap-time in Friday both practice session for US GP.

The Spaniard also said that they are planning to push hard Red Bull on Sunday race, and the Italian squad will fight every lap in the race for title.

“No surprises for us, they are the quickest out there, they have the fastest package, They do first and second in all the practices, first and second in all qualifying, and if everything goes normal, first and second in the race. Alonso said

“In the race sometimes everything is not going normal, and we put more pressure on them on Sundays, we will take out opportunities, we will fight every lap in the race. We know the strong point of them, we keep repeating this every race, is the speed of the package. They are very quick.

“Our strong points are the united team, a very strong team, the driveability of our car. We try to use each of our strong points, and the important thing is to score 11 points more than them in these two races.

The Spaniard added, “I’m still convinced that we can do it, but we are not surprised when they are first and second in practice and qualifying. Starting third would be fantastic, but we were third many Fridays, and then on Saturday McLaren, Lotus they seem to use the potential that maybe on Friday they hide.

“It’s possible that we’ll have a tough qualifying. But we were seventh and ninth in Abu Dhabi, and we scored three points more than Vettel. If we are better than seventh I think we can score even more points.”
