Fernando Alonso is adamant that Ferrari is still in the Formula One title fight, but stressed that everything will turn on the next few races.
Alonso has lost momentum in recent weeks, and the gap to leader Sebastian Vettel has grown.
“The title will be decided by what the performance of the cars is in next four races, in my opinion,” Alonso said on Thursday at Spa-Francorchamps. “We have Spa, medium downforce, Monza, light downforce and Singapore, maximum downforce. These three circuits, with three completely different setups and configurations of the cars, will tell us which is the main contender for Vettel. He is the big favorite. Who will catch him or put him in some difficulties, we will see.
“After the form of Lewis (Hamilton) in Hungary, he at the moment can chase for the title. (Kimi) Raikkonen will always be there, because Lotus with the tire degradation that they have will always be a contender on Sundays. We hope and we believe that Ferrari will win that group. We work for that with some changes that we have made in the car for this race.
