Some days ago, the Spaniard's former Renault boss said Alonso only has a 30 per cent chance of beating Sebastian Vettel to the chequered flag next month.

Briatore is now quoted by Italy's Tuttosport as saying: "With a (Ferrari) car like this, you do not win the championship."

Alonso looked disappointed on the Korea podium after finishing third and losing his championship lead, but afterwards told reporters he was "happy".

"Ferdi is telling lies -- he is not happy at all," Briatore, still involved in Alonso's management, insisted.

Alonso replied to Briatore's comments: "He could have said all that in March as well."
