Last season’s Formula One runner-up Fernando Alonso expects the likes of Red Bull, McLaren and Ferrari to dominate the 2013 campaign.

In the first seven races of the 2012 season, there were seven different winners, however Alonso believes 2013 will be more predictable.

“I think it will be very difficult to repeat what we saw last year, with seven winners in the first seven races. I think that really was a one-off,” Alonso said.

“With the new rules Formula One was more different. In the second half of the season, with things more stabilised, the top teams emerged. Those that had won in the last few years, they came through.

“I think there will be two or three teams that will practically win all the races, and we have to be one of those teams.”

Late last week Ferrari unveiled their new F138 car at their Maranello factory, with grand hopes for the new season after technical issues hampered the Spaniard’s bold title effort last campaign.
