Elias sends Spain wild with 250 thriller.

But today, despite his injuries, second just wasn't an option for Elias and with fireworks already going off the Spaniard took the lead back with another desperately late outbraking move, and clung on through the final corners for a dream victory.

Elias punched the air with delight - and disbelief - as he crossed the line, triggering celebrations that only happen when a Spaniard wins in Spain: Flag waving and deafening 'Toni, Toni' cheering from the masses, before Elias ran through the gravel trap to celebrate with the huge 'bowl' of fanatical fans towards the end of his slow down lap, where he abided by tradition by lighting his own line of the almost military strength fireworks.

Magic.

Almost forgotten amidst the party atmosphere were fellow podium finishers Rolfo and de Puniet, with Poggiali's win streak finally ending as he came home fourth
