Ferrari's Fernando Alonso admitted he'd been pitched into a "mini-championship" after a mistake from Kimi Raikkonen shattered his big lead in the Formula One standings. 

Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso relaxes in the pit during the third practice session of the Formula One Japanese Grand Prix at the Suzuka circuit on October 6. The Spaniard admitted he'd been pitched into a "mini-championship" after a mistake from Kimi Raikkonen shattered his big lead in the Formula One standings.

The 31-year-old Spaniard, the champion in 2005 and 2006, said he had no idea what Raikkonen was doing when he hit his rear wheel on the first corner at the Japanese Grand Prix, sending him out with a puncture just seconds into the race.
