Fernando Alonso became the youngest-ever Grand Prix winner and the first Spanish winner in Hungary today after a superb drive saw his Renault R23 finish 16.7s ahead of Kimi Raikkonen.

Brilliant strategy saw the 22 year-old Spaniard burst into the lead in a start that was confused when yellow flags were waved for Cristiano da Matta's stalled Toyota. The key point for Alonso was that Mark Webber, starting third, on the clean side of the grid, jumped straight into second place as the Williams duo of Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya, starting second and fourth, lagged on the dirty side. Schumacher Jnr then compounded his problems by spinning almost to last place in the second corner.

Running a three-stop strategy, Alonso rocketed away and only lost the lead, to Raikkonen, when he made his first stop on lap 13. The Finn stayed ahead until lap 18 when he made his own first stop of three, whereupon Alonso regained an initiative he was never again to lose. He stopped again on laps 30 and 49, and was never again seriously threatened.

The icing on the cake came on the 62nd lap, when Alonso lapped Michael Schumacher. The world champion had a desperate afternoon in his Bridgestone-shod Ferrari, which was the first runner home, in only eighth place, for the Japanese tyre manufacturer.

hi.. just a request

would it be possible to NOT post the results of the race in the thread title? (for those who have not yet seen the race). also include the word SPOILER in the subtitle (much like we use NWS in the lounge).
