"I think so because this is Ferrari," he told Sky Sports F1
when asked if Raikkonen would ever defer to Alonso if the situation required it. "There is not any super power in terms of driver decision or anything like that, it's the same for Felipe and it's the same for myself if it arrives the moment that I need to help another team-mate to win the championship."
As for this year, Alonso admitted that the title chances were slipping away form him and that matters were largely out of Ferrari's hands at this point of the season.
"We need to be realistic about the championship now there's a very big gap," he conceded. "We don't have enough races and probably we don't have the speed right now to win some consecutive races and hope to reduce the gap just by pace. We need to be lucky and we need to have some DNFs from Sebastian or something to win the championship."
Not that Alonso was giving up, however.
"There's still a long way to go; we will try until the last race to be as good as we can and score as many points as possible and then in Brazil we will see how many points we have compared to him."
