Fernando Alonso happy with Ferrari progress for new season

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso says he is confident going into the 2013 F1 season and is pleased with the strides the team are taking to ensure they mount another championship challenge.

Alonso finished second in the 2012 drivers championship but feels the addition of new aerodynamicists to the team will help them be more competitive in the coming season.

The double world champion is also positive that former McLaren team-mate Lewis Hamilton will win races in 2013 for his new team Mercedes.*
