An additional three points were added to Fernando Alonso’s deficit to the championship leader at the United States Grand Prix, but that didn’t do anything to take away the spirit in the Ferrari camp.

Sebastian Vettel leads from the Spaniard by 13 points as Formula 1 heads to the season-finale at the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend with the Italian team vowing to battle it out to the end.

“We can be proud of what we have achieved so far,” Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo said on the Ferrari website. “For the past 16 years, with very few exceptions, we have got used to reaching the final stage of the championship in this situation and here we are again this season, so that whatever the outcome, we have been contenders.”

Alonso’s odds of winning his third title are steep, but it’s a hill the team is prepared to climb despite not having won a race since the German Grand Prix in July. In contrast, Vettel has won four of the last six races and has been on the podium in the other two.

“However, pride is not enough: we want to win,” said Montezemolo. “Now we go to Sao Paolo, Brazil with the will to win, knowing that we will fight for it right to the last kilometre of the last lap of the race at Interlagos.

“I know it will be very tough, but I and all of us believe we can do it!” he added.
