No point in giving up yet but...

From Spa to the end of the season there have been 21 races run over the last 3 years, Vettel has won more than half of them, he's been on the podium at 16 of them and retired only 3 times, if that trend continues Alonso can't win the championship this year.
Ferrari improved yesterday and Alonso was at his very best but they still lost ground in the championship. To win he'd have to perform like that at the last 8 races (possible) and Vettel would need to have 2 maybe 3 retirements (highly unlikely)

The look on Alonso's face at the end of the race wasn't the look of a man who believed he could still win the WDC. He looked defeated. He can still do it but it will take a solid dose of luck and better performances on Saturday.
