Sebastian Vettel has insisted that he is not focusing on Fernando Alonso in the US Grand Prix.

Vettel starts from pole position, while Alonso will start only eighth.

"There's not much to feel. We have to look after ourselves. I am happy we had a smooth session with no issues. Yesterday afternoon was not ideal, but these things can happen and they might happen again"

"It is the best strategy to keep your head down and try to do your best. I am very happy with the result but so far nobody has scored any points. We saw in the last race how quickly things can change and starting from the back gives you opportunities. We will focus on our race and tomorrow aim to seal the constructors' title for the team".

Vettel will secure the title on Sunday if the grid positions are translated through into the race, with Red Bull set to win the Constructors Championship.

"I think we can say we were quite competitive and happy with the results today", added Vettel.
