New world champion Fernando Alonso says it will still be a perfect season even if his Renault team do not go on to win the Formula One constructors' title.
Renault and McLaren have been battling all season for top spot
The Spaniard secured his first drivers' crown in Brazil last month, but the constructors' championship goes down to the season's final race in Shanghai.
Renault lead McLaren 176-174, but Alonso played down its significance.
"I can't ask for more from a season - if win the constructors' it's okay, if not, it's okay too," he said.
"It's important for the image of the team and a little bit for the hype for next year but really not a crucial point."
McLaren have won the last six races with Kimi Raikkonen claiming four of those victories to take his season's tally to seven wins compared with Alonso's six.
However, Alonso said the Finn's recent dominance does not put him under any extra pressure.
"I don't care how many the others win - if everything stays like this I will be happy because I won only one race less than the best car in Formula One," he said.
