Mark Webber reckons teammate Sebastian Vettel won’t have it easy in the next four races suggesting that the German’s chief rival Fernando Alonso was still in the title hunt.

The Ferrari driver lost his lead in the standings after the defending champion won three races in a row while the Spaniard continues to struggle with an under-par car. But that has given Webber no reason to believe that Vettel will easily clinch his third successive title this year.

"I think Alonso has a good chance of winning the title,” the Australian was quoted saying by the Press Trust of India. “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," he added.

Like the title contenders, Webber too was hungry to win races this season and close the 63 gap deficit to his teammate.

“The next two events are very important that we keep our foot on their throats and see how the next few go. We are not looking at the points really. We need to reap in the maximum from the races ahead," he said.

"I would love to win races and improve my position on the championship table, as much as possible. Our goal is to challenge for victories and we are capable of doing that," he pointed out.
