2008 Japanese F1 GP – Race Result – Alonso wins again

Fernando Alonso Japanese GP 2008

Fernando Alonso Japanese GP 2008

Against all the odds Fernando Alonso won his second race in row after the title contenders got it all wrong. Alonso now has as many wins as Kimi Raikkonen this year … Robert Kubica finished second, Kimi Raikkonen returned to the podium in third place. Kubica keeps himself in the title fight but Kimi is now officially out. Nelson Piquet seems to serious about keeping his Renault F1 drive after finishing 4th. Felipe Massa claimed one point for 8th (pending stewards investigation for the Massa vs Bourdais incident). Lewis Hamilton just aboyt outlapped himself on the last lap and scored zero. As it stands 6 points separate Hamilton and Massa. The drive through penalties for Hamilton and Massa will however probably be the main talking points of this race (videos of the incidents involving Massa and Hamilton at the bottom of this post) …

Update: Sebastien Bourdais was given 25 seconds penalty for his out-of-the-pitlane tussle with Felipe Massa. As a result Bourdais dropped to 10th place, Massa was elevated to 7th and Mark Webber to 8th, Heidfeld to 9th. The gap between Massa and Hamilton is now only 5 points … Yet another talking point …
