Fernando Alonso: We will win the championship

Alonso believes Ferrari can still win F1 championship

Formula One driver Fernando Alonso believes Ferrari can still win the championship despite a poor result at last weekend's British Grand Prix.

The Ferrari's of Alonso and teammate Felipe Massa failed to score any points on Sunday, finishing 14th and 15th respectively.

It means the Italian team have amassed just 19 points in the last three races and lie third in the constructors' championship on 165 points with McLaren leading on 278.

Nevertheless, Alonso is confident the team can turn things around and close the gap on their rivals.

Ferrari.com quotes the Spaniard as saying over the team radio after Sunday's race: "OK guys, keep your heads up, heads up. We will win the championship."

"We are only halfway through the season and there is plenty of time to recover. We have a great car and we proved that to everyone this weekend and confirmed it with this fastest race lap."

Alonso will be hoping Ferrari can gain a much better result in the next race – the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim on July 25th.
