Fernando Alonso thinks Sebastian Vettel should not be nervous about his championship chances.
"I don't know what's in his (Vettel's) head," Spaniard Alonso told the EFE news agency in Hungary, "but if I was him I would not be at all nervous.
"He only needs to have fourth, fifth places until the end of the season to be champion. And I think if I had a Red Bull and I had to do fourths and fifths I would not be very worried.
Vettel, meanwhile, played down reports he might be slowed even further by a cut on the palm of his right hand.
It's a small thing, but we're men -- we like to make a fuss
"It's a small thing," said the German after television cameras spotted the bandages, "but we're men -- we like to make a fuss," Vettel joked to Bild newspaper.
The report said the 24-year-old cut his hand in Switzerland repairing a pedal on his mountain bike.
"It's nothing, it just hurts a bit sometimes," added Vettel.
