An upbeat Fernando Alonso says Ferrari managed to get the maximum out of his car this season, despite Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel racing away toward the drivers’ title.

“This season was fantastic for me again,” Alonso said Saturday after managing just eighth in qualifying for the Indian Grand Prix. “If I look at the classification, to have 107 points, my teammate (Felipe Massa) having a very good season like this one at 90 points, I think we struck the maximum from the car we have.”

Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso says keeping the 2013 Formula One title chase alive will not be his top priority in Sunday’s Japanese Grand Prix.

Championship leader Sebastian Vettel would clinch his fourth straight title on Sunday if the Red Bull driver wins and Alonso, his closest rival, finishes ninth or worse.

However, Alonso said he is more concerned with the race for the constructors’ championship. Ferrari has 284 points, just one ahead of Mercedes with five races left.
