Ferrari's Fernando Alonso roared to victory in the Chinese Formula One Grand Prix this morning, making amends for crashing out of the previous race in Malaysia.
In a dry race dictated by tyre choices and frequent pitstops, the Spaniard beat Lotus's Kimi Raikkonen by 10.1 seconds.
Lewis Hamilton completed a trio of world champions on the podium with third place for Mercedes after starting on pole. It was nail bitingly close, with reigning championship Sebastail Vettel just unable to overtake Hamilton after a late tyre change of tyres and charge.
McLaren's Jenson Button came fifth 35 seconds behind the leader.
The win was Alonso's first since Germany last July and was the 31st of his career, taking him to fourth in the all-time list alongside Britain's 1992 champion Nigel Mansell.
Vettel retained the overall lead.
