Alonso says usual suspects will fight for F1 title

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - The usual suspects will end up fighting for this season's Formula One championship and Ferrari can be contenders despite struggling with their car's performance, according to Fernando Alonso.

The double world champion is leading the standings in his Ferrari after two of 20 races following a victory against the odds in rain-hit Malaysia last month.

McLaren are out in front in the constructors' race, ahead of Red Bull and Ferrari.

However there have been surprises with Sauber finishing second thanks to Mexican Sergio Perez in Malaysia, and having Japan's Kamui Kobayashi lining up in third place on the grid for Sunday's race in China.

Williams and Lotus, previously Renault, have also looked competitive.
