Alonso celebrates 'best season' of career

SAO PAULO (AP) - Fernando Alonso again came up just short of his third Formula One title. Still, he called this his best season by far.

Alonso finished second to Jenson Button at the Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday, which wasn't enough to avoid also finishing second to Sebastian Vettel in the F1 drivers' standings.

But the Ferrari driver, who had a commanding lead in the championship standings midway through the year, says he is ``very satisfied'' after having a ``dream season.''

Alonso finished three points behind Vettel in the drivers' championship despite a car he said was slower than the Red Bulls and McLarens all year.

He said he ``would change nothing done by the team.''
