Ferrari's Fernando Alonso yesterday promised to make life more difficult for Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull after seeing another title challenge slip through his fingers.

Alonso, a two-time world champion in 2005 and 2006, finally had his faint championship chances extinguished when he got off to a slow start and finished 11th at the Indian Grand Prix.

The Spaniard is on course for his third runner-up finish in four seasons behind Vettel, but hopes to come back stronger next year when new engine rules promise to shake up F1. “I congratulate Vettel.

They’ve been very strong, very dominant, especially in the second half of the season, so they deserve to be champions. We need to start thinking for next year and try to make things more difficult for him.”
