Alonso wins British GP

Fernando Alonso takes an emotional win at Silverstone as Ferrari launch fightback.
Fernando Alonso comes through to win a challenging British Grand Prix and give the Scuderia its first victory of the year.

Alonso eventually finished more than 15 seconds up on Sebastian Vettel, who led from the off until a slow stop on lap 28 cost him around 10 seconds. Vettel took the runners-up spot despite intense late pressure from pole sitter and team-mate Mark Webber, who in the end was told by the team to hold station and settle for third.

Lewis Hamilton meanwhile was fourth, making contact with Felipe Massa on the last lap, as he limped home in fuel conservation mode and tried to hold off the Brazilian.

Nico Rosberg took sixth for Mercedes followed by Sergio Perez's Sauber and Nick Heidfeld's Renault.

Michael Schumacher and Jamie Alguersuari rounded out the points' scorers in ninth and tenth respectively.
