Webber: Alonso still has a chance

Webber: Alonso still has a chance

Mark Webber is adamant Fernando Alonso has not yet lost the World title to Sebastian Vettel as the title race is "still very open."

Vettel took a step closer to a third successive crown in Korea where he claimed his third successive race victory to move into the lead in the Drivers' Championship.

The German now holds a six-point lead over the Ferrari driver with 100 points still to play for.

But despite the Red Bull racer now having the mathematical and psychological advantage over Alonso, Webber says the Spaniard is by no means out of it.

"I think Alonso has a good chance of winning the title," Webber told ANS.

"He had a couple of tough races like Suzuka where he lost points.

"But with four races to go both Sebastian and Alonso have many points left to bag.

"It is still very open.

"Both of them have had a tough time but they have been very consistent too.

"Anything can happen. We could have a wet race in Brazil.

"It's not over till it is over."
