Lady Luck Shines on Alonso

P_Sep28_172917

Fernando Alonso must have done some serious praying on saturday asking the heavens to miraculously disappear the 14 cars in front of him, and the Gods did comply.

From the start of the beautifully lighted circuit Massa opened a comfortable lead over Lewis who didnt look challenging enough. But the whole picture changed when Renault second driver Nelson Piquet crashed his car to bring the safety car on track. This brought about the turn of fortunes for Ferrari. Massa on his pit stop got the fuel nozzle stuck to his car and went off with it almost crashing with a couple of cars in the pits. He later got a drive through penalty for it ending his chances to win the race.

This made it easy for Alonso who had pitted before the incident. he went on to win the race easily.
