Mark Webber regains F1 lead as Hamilton crashes

Fernando Alonso Epiphany - Hey this is really cool. If you stick your thumb on the top and shake the bottle in sprays everywhere

Fernando Alonso has won the Italian F1 Grand Prix at Monza for Ferrari while Drivers Championship leader McLarens Lewis Hamilton crashed on first corner.

Alonso started from pole but Jenson Button passed him before the first corner. Lewis Hamilton had made a a fast start moving into fourth but got greedy on the second chicane and managed to wreck his suspension on Felipe Massa’s rear tyre.

While Alonso won the battle and moved up to third in the World Drivers Championship it was Red Bulls Mark Webber who looks the most likely to win the war now. His sixth place at Monza was enough to give him a five point lead over Lewis Hamilton, in what is the closest title race in years.
