Fernando Alonso won the 2012 Malaysian Grand Prix

Article by Christian A., on March 25, 2012

At the Malaysian Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso was able to hold off Sergio Perez to take the prize amid changing weather and a long red flag. With Alfonso’s win, Ferrari is brought to the forefront of the race and takes lead for later nabbing the world championship. But then, Perez committed a late error and mistakenly passed the double champion to get what was likely to be one of Formula 1's most astonishing wins ever for Sauber.

Lewis Hamilton took the podium too with Jenson Button (his McLaren team-mate) after the race. Sebastian Vettel was also unable to reach a score that’s the result of participating in a traffic clash. While that’s going on, Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber took fourth place ahead of Lotus’ Kimi Raikkonen and Williams’ Bruno Senna.

A large part of the field used intermediates for the start, which took place on a track dry in certain parts but very wet in others. The McLarens took their grid formation into the first corner, as Romain Grosjean and Michael Schumacher fended off Fernando Alonso who held off Sergio Perez spinning as the Lotus slid into the Mercedes. This enabled Red Bull co-drivers Mark Webber and Vettel to take third and fourth, before Alonso. When the rain started, Sauber immediately put Perez straight into extreme wet tires.
