German Grand Prix

Renault's Fernando Alonso won the German Grand Prix on Sunday and take a huge step towards becoming Formula One's youngest champion.

A typically messy Hockenheim start resulted in three cars being pushed off the track and effectively ended all hope of points for Williams's Australian driver Mark Webber, Italian Toyota driver Jarno Trulli and BAR's Takuma Sato, who all had to pit on the first lap.

Kimi Raikkonen, who started on pole, moved across to block a charging Alonso as they turned into the first corner and with his position secured raced out into 5.2 second lead at the end of the 11th lap.
