Alonso deflects pressure talk
World championship leader Fernando Alonso insists he would not change places with any of his Formula 1 rivals.
The Spaniard holds a 37-point advantage over second-placed Lewis Hamilton after the McLaren ace won in Italy a fortnight ago.
The 2012 season has been characterised by grands prix being won by many different drivers, however Alonso and Hamilton have each won three apiece to set up an intriguing run-in to the end of term.
Alonso says he respects the pace of McLaren following the team's strong recent displays, but he denies he is coming under any undue stress from them.
Alonso told the BBC: "I'm not under pressure at all. I'm probably the only one who can afford a mistake or a retirement.
"The others cannot, so I think it is much more pressure [for them]."
Reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel, who is 39 points off the pace, was fastest in practise on Friday ahead of Sunday's Singapore Grand Prix.
