Alonso hails Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull as 'the best'

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso says Red Bull have ironed out the problems they had last season and in 2011 have had "the best team, the best driver, the best package" and deserve to be where they are.

Alonso trails Sebastian Vettel by 112 points in the World Championship standings after the German's eighth victory of the season at the Italian Grand Prix.

Vettel could seal his second consecutive title under the floodlights at the Singapore Grand Prix, but Alonso says while his team realise they cannot win the "Tour de France", they are still hungry for "stage victories" and will be aggressive at the Marina Bay Circuit, which is expected to suit the Ferrari.
