Ferrari can still win F1 championship despite Silverstone failure says Alonso

Ferrari will still win the Formula One championship despite failing to score any points in the British Grand Prix, says the team's double world champion Fernando Alonso.

Alonso says his team shouldn't be downhearted despite he and Brazilian Felipe Massa finishing 14th and 15th respectively at Silverstone.

Alonso says they're only at the halfway point of the season and there's plenty of time to recover and he's encouraged by the fact he set the fastest fastest race lap time.

Ferrari's performance was the Italian team's worst of the season and their first failure to score any points in a race since last year's season-ender in Abu Dhabi.
