Greater Noida: Ferrari's Fernando Alonso said 'today was the day to congratulate Sebastian Vettel' for his historic title win but promised to make life tough for his German rival in the next season.
Alonso was the only man who could have taken the championship fight to Abu Dhabi but the Spaniard failed to win a single point by finishing 11th.
"Congratulations Sebastian. Obviously very, very strong season, dominating specially the second part of the year with many many wins. Well done to him and to the team. Hopefully, next year we can make things more difficult than this year," said Alonso.
