I'm a bit surprised by the over-confidence of Alonso. Given that he is a good driver, but how can he be very confident that he can easily re-claim the deficit. All it needs is another couple of DNFs either because of car trouble or someone else mistake and if 2 other drivers (namely Vettel or Raikkonen) get some consecutive podium/wins, he will have lot of catching up to do. In the meantime if Massa scores couple of 12 point finishes, he will be 30 points or so ahead. I still remember he covered 40-point deficit in 2010 to lead WDC in the last race. But I doubt if it can happen every time as the teams are more competitive now (there were 3 good teams then, now there are 5 if and when mclaren becomes competitive).
