Fernando Alonso says that Ferrari are currently "behind the top teams" ahead of the 2013 Formula 1 season.

Fernando Alonso has said that Ferrari are "behind the top teams" ahead of the 2013 Formula 1 season.

Alonso has been testing Ferrari's F138 car in Barcelona this week as part of the third and final winter testing event.

The Spanish driver told Sky Sports News: "I think we are a little bit behind the top teams, which is where we expected to be.

"In Brazil we were seven or eight tenths behind the Red Bull and McLarens and no-one can recover that amount of time in a couple of months.

"Hopefully we will arrive a little bit closer than that in Melbourne."

The 2013 season gets underway with the Australian Grand Prix on March 17.
