's championship lead took a massive hit in Japan on Sunday, after the Spaniard spun into retirement at the first corner. The fact his main championship rival Sebastian Vettel
went on to dominate the grand prix was therefore the worst-possible news for the Ferrari
driver, whose rear tyre was cut by Kimi Raikkonen
"I'm very sad for him," Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali told British broadcaster Sky. Alonso's championship lead is therefore slashed from 29 points to just 4 with five races to go. "5 great races coming!" Alonso announced on Twitter after his retirement. "If the enemy thinks in the mountains, attack by sea, if they think in the sea, attack by the mountains."
Vettel dominated at Suzuka, amid reports in Germany's Auto Motor und Sport his Red Bull has been boosted this weekend by the addition of a new 'double DRS'-style rear wing. "It means Red Bull can run more downforce to make the car faster in the corners without the consequent penalty on the straights," explained BBC technical expert Gary Anderson. (GMM)
