Spain’s Fernando Alonso Wins First Formula One GP of 2010

Posted on 15 March 2010 by dianew

Fernando Alonso won the first F1 race of the season yesterday, in Bahrain.
Driving for Ferrari for the first time, he was quoted as being ‘extremely happy’ with his new team, and with his win. “It is difficult to imagine a happier start” he said after the race, in which he came in 16 seconds ahead of 2nd placed Felipe Massa, and 23 seconds ahead of Lewis Hamilton, in 3rd place.

After winning the championship 2 years in a row, he had gone 3 years without coming close, moving teams twice, until he settled with Ferrari, proving so far to be a good move.

He said “One must keep their feet on the floor, but I feel confident, and look forward to the season.”

Michael Schumacher made his return to the sport after coming out of ‘retirement’ and managed a reasonable 6th place.

Jensen Button, reigning champion, came in behind him, in 7th place.
