Fernando Alonso believes he can bounce back after losing out to Michael Schumacher for the second race in a row at the French Grand Prix.

"We knew that Michael was a bit quicker this weekend - like in Imola and the Nürburgring," said the Renault driver.
"Back then, everybody thought that Michael would win all the races after two wins in a row, and we responded very strongly.
"Hopefully, we can do the same at Hockenheim in two weeks' time."
Schumacher became the first driver to win the same Grand Prix eight times with a commanding victory, from pole position, at Magny-Cours on Sunday.
His 88th career win, and fourth of the season for Ferrari, saw the German close the gap on championship leader Alonso to 17 points.

Alonso also missed out at the previous race at Indianapolis, where he had settle for fifth as Schumacher led a Ferrari one-two.
But the Spaniard did well to limit the damage to just two points on Sunday after edging into third Ferrari's Felipe Massa, who had held him up early in the race allowing Schumacher to break away.
"Given where I started on the grid, I think second is everything I could have hoped for," he added.
"Once we saw that Ferrari would be three-stopping then we knew it would be hard to pass them on the track.
"So we chose to rely on the consistent tyre performance, and make two stops.
"The car balance was consistent all the way through the race, and I pushed hard to make sure I could get ahead of Felipe in the final part of the race."
Engineering boss Pat Symonds is also confident that Renault can return to winning ways in time for the German Grand Prix at the end of the month.
"We are now looking forward to Germany, where we will have substantial revisions to the aerodynamics and engine," he told the Renault website.
"We lost two races to Ferrari earlier in the season, and bounced back strongly. That's what we intend to do again, beginning in Hockenheim."
