F1: I have nothing to lose, says Alonso
SAO PAULO (AFP) - Fernando Alonso insists he has nothing to lose in this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix title showdown in which he seeks to wreck defending champion Sebastian Vettel's bid for a third title and take the crown himself for a third time.
The 31-year-old Spaniard trails the 25-year-old German Red Bull driver by 13 points ahead of the Interlagos race, but he remains hopeful that he can deliver an unexpected triumph.
"It would be good to be on the podium to score a minimum of 15 points and when we cross the line we will see where Seb is and we will try and do the numbers after that," said the Ferrari driver.
"The first priority is to be on the podium, which gives us a possibility to score more than 13 points and then we need to wait for the result from Red Bull.
