Fernando Alonso has warned Nico Rosberg that anything is possible ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix, as reported by sportsmole.co.uk.
The German driver can win the World Championship, the first of his career, if he takes victory at Interlagos but Alonso knows all too well that things very rarely turn out to be that straightforward in Formula 1.
The Spaniard has been in a number of title showdowns both in Brazil and elsewhere over the years, being a victor and losing out on different occasions.
In 2006 he saw off a brave Michael Schumacher resurgence to claim his second title but saw himself ousted in 2007 by Kimi Raikkonen.
In 2010 he was left frustrated in Abu Dhabi behind Vitaly Petrov for practically the whole race as Sebastian Vettel took the crown and again saw the then Red Bull driver pip him to the title in 2012.
They are experiences he will have learned from undoubtedly and he has warned Rosberg that nothing is certain. He said: “I have been in these positions and not won. I know that anything can happen and reliability can play an important factor.”
Only Lewis Hamilton can now prevent Rosberg from his maiden title and is 19 points behind him with two rounds to go.
