Alonso wants 'special race' in Brazil

Fernando Alonso says losing only three points to championship rival Sebastian Vettel in the US Grand Prix is "like a gift" and says he will need "a special race in Brazil" in order to claim the title.

Ferrari team-mate Felipe Massa says the team's decision to demote him five places on the grid before the race was "very difficult" and reveals his fourth place felt "like a victory".

Alonso's third place in Texas means he heads to Sao Paulo with a 13-point deficit to the reigning world champion in the drivers' standings.
