Alonso Wins in Malaysia

Fernando Alonso has just taken victory ahead of (rumoured Ferrari target driver) Sergio Perez and McLaren's Lewis Hamilton.

In doing so Alonso now leads the World Driver Championship.

His car, the object of heavy criticism this year, performed very well in the variable wet/dry conditions.  The team were spot on with pit stop and tyre tactics and Alonso handled the conditions masterfully.

Massa however languished in 16th.

So the World Championship leaderboard now reads Alonso 36 points, Hamilton 30, Button 25, Webber 24, Perez 22, Vettel 18 and Kimi Raikkonen 16.

Vettel retired after a puncture with Karthikeyan and then, after rejoining the race, the team asked him to stop.  Button came in 14th after a meeting with Karthikeyan.
