Ferrari's Fernando Alonso is confident that he can overtake Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel in the final two races of the season and win the world championship title.

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso has insisted that he can win the world championship title this season.

The Spaniard is currently 10 points behind leader Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull in second place, with just two races remaining.

"I'm confident," he is quoted as saying by the BBC. "We will fight to the end. We are not fast enough, this is true and we know this.

"It's a weak point, the performance that we have at the moment in our package, but we have some strong points which we will try to use.

"We have two important races. We will try to finish in front of Sebastian. We know that maybe with pure pace we cannot do it; we need to use other points."

The next Grand Prix is in Austin, Texas on November 18 and the final race will be held in Brazil a week later.
