'Third time just as emotional' says Alonso of home win

"I think that with this car we can fight for the World Championship, because in five races we have finished second once and had two wins," he said, sounding more upbeat about his title chances than he has in some time.

"From now on, we must manage to produce a consistent performance and score as many points as possible," he added. "We are well aware that we are not the quickest and to change that many people are working night and day at the track and in Maranello."

If the car does get a boost in performance to add to the Ferrari consistency and Alonso's own driving skills, then the rest of the field will be feeling very worried indeed on the evidence of this weekend's race in Spain.

The only truly worthy and memorable thing about yesterdays race was Alonso's performance. Stunning first lap, just awesome race pace, given these stupid Pirellis, and a mature and controlled drive to the flag. When he went to Ferrari, after all the toys-out-the-pram antics at McLaren, and two sulky years at Renault, I didn't have much time for Fernando, but he's earned my respect, both off and on the track. What can one say but - hats off!

Bravo Fernando Bravo Ferrari Well done for the win and congrautlations for Alonso for making it 4th in the all time wins list with 30 A dominant performance by Ferrari in Spain and its a pitty Massa got a pernalty or else he would have been fighting for 2nd. Mercedes GP need to look into their cars because points are given on sundays and locking the front row then going backwards is not good at all. Both the driver's and constructor's championship become tightier and i cant wait for Monaco. Oh yea, whats the deal with Mclaren trying to slow Perez down with just 2 laps to go with a time difference of less than 1.5 seconds between him and Button? Its evident that were protecting Button because what damage would pushing do in 2 laps? Woohoo Go Alonso
