Reuters: Fernando Alonso got the most out of his Ferrari in Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix but it was not enough to beat Sebastian Vettel’s dominant Red Bull and prevent him stretching his overall lead. The Spaniard went from ninth on the starting grid to second at the finish but still Vettel surged 46 points clear at the top of the championship after his fifth win in 11 races. “When they are dominating the weekend, when they do everything better than us and they win the race, they deserve the win,” Alonso told reporters. “Weekends like this one we need to extract the maximum from the car. That is what we did this weekend, all we could in qualifying, all we could in the race.” “When you are the second fastest, you deserve to finish second,” added the Ferrari driver, who moved up to second overall.
