I don't like Horner. He can't be trusted and a political animal.

Funny, Horner is trying to convince themselves that Ferrari is beatable. I suspect RB is losing some confidence considering how quickly Ferrari has bounced back. No one expected Ferrari to be in the position they are in now. The key reason Ferrari is at where they are now is because they have Alonso as a driver. He is at his prime now and is almost invincible on the track. He beat the RBs, Mercs and Lotus with a slower car. Now that he has a car that is as fast as a RB or McL, he'll be tough to beat.

These two are trying to talk up their chances is par for the course. Horner seems to believe that they have a devine right to win all the time and Whitmarch has been deluding himself for ages. It is highly unlikely that Alonso is suddenly going to have a string of mechanical failures or start driving badly so the chances for Red Bull and McClaren are small. Let's assume that they improve their cars so much that they are much faster than Ferrari then I believe that there is only one driver, Vettel who might potentially pose a threat, the other three are far too erratic to pose a real threat.
