Or 'Ole ole ole' as they must be saying in Spain this morning.

Fernando Alonso put in a fine performance to take victory in his first Italian Grand Prix for Ferrari at Monza 2010.

After Jenson Button beat him to the first corner, Alonso had to focus hard to regain the lead he took with his pole position.

Webber has regained his championship lead with his sixth place after Hamilton was overly aggressive in trying to pass Massa on lap one and damaged his car, retiring ignominiously into the gravel trap with his front right wheel flapping like a sail.

Alonso now takes his place behind Hamilton and Webber with 166 points to Hamilton's 182 and Webber's 187.  Button is now one point behind Alonso with Vettel two points behind Button.

This is one of the closest title fights in F1 history.

  1. This is a really close title fight, I think that Webber and Button have the edge though. Both are less likely, I feel, to make rash moves that put them out of races than the other three.
