Alonso: It's a shame it didn't rain

Fernando Alonso was happy to finish the 2013 season on a high, but he believes he would've done much better had there been rain at Interlagos.

The two-time World Champion put in his best qualifying display in a while on Saturday to start third on the grid, but he didn't get off to the best of starts and slipped down the grid.

However, he fought back brilliantly and finished third behind the Red Bulls of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber.

The Spaniard, though, is confident he would've been able to challenge for the first two places if the forecasted rain fell during the Brazilian GP on Sunday.

"It was a difficult race for everyone. The rain did not come and we would have been more competitive in the wet," he said.

"It seemed like it was going to rain at any time but it didn't and it was a shame for us. But to finish on the podium means we finish the season on a high. Next year we look forwards."
