Fernando Alonso is expecting Ferrari's battle in the championship with rivals Williams to last until the end of the 2014 season.

Alonso's Ferrari team is currently in third place in the Constructors' championship, albeit just seven points ahead of Williams.

The Spaniard is anticipating Williams to hold the upper hand across the next two race weekends, at Spa and Monza, with their FW36 expected to suit the characteristics of both circuits.

"The target obviously is to help the team and fight for third in the championship which we lost with Williams in Germany and recovered in Hungary," he said.

"Obviously it will be a close fight to the end, there are races now in favour of Williams – Spa and Monza – so we need to deliver good results and score good points."

Alonso added that his own ambition is to beat Daniel Ricciardo to third place in the Drivers' Championship.

Ricciardo currently has 131 points, 16 more than Alonso.

"In the drivers I'd like to finish third and fight Ricciardo but I know this is quite an ambitions target so we see what we [can] do."
