This is Alonso’s fourth season with Ferrari, still Red Bull done better jobs and currently Vettel holds 46-point lead over Alonso.
Asked about the alleged power struggle, the team boss told the official F1 website: “No, no, this is something that I totally reject. We want to win together…”
Suggested that perhaps the problem is that they ‘cannot lose together’, he added: “This is a team sport. If you are alone in the business you can win or lose alone. But that’s not the concept of Formula One.
