Japanese GP: Alonso wins, 3rd place for Kimi
Sunday, 12 October 2008
Fernando Alonso took his 2nd victory in succession in the Japanese Grand Prix, as title contenders Felipe Massa and Lewis Hamilton finished only eighth and 12th after a series of controversial early incidents.

Robert Kubica kept himself in title contention by finishing second for BMW, fending off Kimi Raikkonen. These two staged some of the best racing of the afternoon as they fought wheel-to-wheel over second on the 53rd lap, before graining tyres forced Raikkonen to settle for the final podium position.
