First Points to Alonso

Fernando Alonso started the 2010 campaign with a win, collecting 25 points under the new system. His fastest lap was a full second quicker than anyone else which shows the potential of the Ferrari.

After Sebastian Vettel's excellent pole position, he slipped back to fourth place with exhaust problems.

Michael Schumacher came in a creditable sixth. His race pace was competitive but he struggled to gain places on the first lap with full fuel tanks. By his own admission he needs to get up to speed with the impact of the new rules excluding refuelling. He learned his craft in flat out sprints between fuel stops.

Heikki Kovalainen brought in the Lotus at 15th. This was a lowly position for him after losing his seat at McLaren to Jenson Button but was a creditable first race back for the historic Lotus name.
