Alonso conquers the rain at the 2012 Malaysian Grand Prix
Double world champion Fernando Alonso sealed victory for Ferrari in the rain affected 2012 Malaysian Grand Prix ahead of a spirited Sergio Perez. Alonso had to fend off a late race charge from the Mexican’s Sauber in an event red flagged for over an hour due to treacherous track conditions. McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton crossed the finish line in third after starting from pole position. Alonso relied on his typically fiery driving style and perfectly timed pit-stops from Ferrari to take the chequered flag after 56 nail biting laps of the Sepang International Circuit.
