Alonso wins in Italy as Webber reclaims F1 lead

7:15 am on 13 September 2010

Fernando Alonso did the driving but the mechanics who performed a lightning-fast pit stop to help the Spaniard take first place in this morning's Italian Grand Prix also won the Ferrari plaudits.

Alonso started on pole for his first home race with the Italians but was overtaken at the start by McLaren's Jenson Button, only to snatch back the lead from the Briton after a perfect pitstop.

It was Ferrari's first win on their home circuit since 2006, which delighted Alonso.

Button was second and Alonso's teammate Felipe Massa third.... Lewis hamilton crashed on the first lap, so 6th placed Mark Webber of Red Bull retakes the championship lead.
