'Nothing new' as Newey keeps dominating - Alonso

After Sebastian Vettel utterly dominated Friday's proceedings in Austin, his title rival Fernando Alonso repeated his claim that the real hero is Adrian Newey.

"It's not a surprise," Ferrari's Spaniard said after the practice sessions at the brand new Circuit of the Americas.

"You," he told reporters, "were surprised when I said we are fighting against Adrian Newey. But now there is nothing new: two Red Bulls ahead in every session. It will be the same in qualifying.

"But because we are the better team, we can get more points on Sunday, just as we did at the last race," he is quoted by Italy's Autosprint, before posting a photo on Facebook of himself and teammate Felipe Massa posing with a huge gun.

"Ready for last two races!" the caption reads.
