Fernando Alonso wins 2007 Malaysian Grand Prix
Sunday, April 8, 2007
McLaren-Mercedes drivers Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton placed first and second in the FIA Formula One 2007 Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix on the Sepang International Circuit, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
From the start to the end of the race, the two "silver arrows" held the lead against their competitors from Ferrari. Alonso created a comfortable gap, while Hamilton held off Felipe Massa and Kimi Räikkönen. Massa pushed very hard on the rookie, who was driving in only his second race, trying to overtake him, but made a crucial mistake before the first pit-stop and found himself off the track. Massa finally finished fifth, behind Nick Heidfeld, a BMW Sauber team driver. Räikkönen showed much more careful driving than Massa, finishing third.
