Italian cars, Spanish success and English SorrowsBack

This weekend saw Spain fly through to the semi finals of Euro 2012 and also saw the England football team crumble under the pressure of Italian maestro, Andrea Pirlo. This success resonated in the world of motor sport, the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Valencia was seized by Fernando Alonso and took him top of the F1 leader board.

The race was a dramatic affair with the leader and favourite, Sebastien Vettel who began the race in pole position retired on lap 34, due to an alternator failure, and Lewis Hamilton having to retire due to a collision with Pastor Maldonado pushing Alonso up to 3rd. He then manoeuvred his Ferrari passed the Lotus driver Romain Grosjean to take second place, with Vettel’s retirement Alonso inherited the lead which he managed to maintain till the very end.

Kimi Raikonnen claimed the number two spot on the podium and Michael Schumacher claimed the third. Schumacher claims that he “would be winning races if he had a competitive car” but feels that Mercedes have not given him one. Despite the victory for Ferrari they are said to be worried by the blistering pace set by Vettel who at one stage in the race had a 7-second lead over Hamilton who was in second at the time.
