Alonso puts heat on Vettel with win

BARCELONA - Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso rewrote the Formula One form book and cranked up the heat in the title battle by winning his home Spanish Grand Prix for the second time on Sunday.

On an afternoon littered with pit stops and full of frustration at high levels of tire degradation, the double world champion powered to his second victory of the season and 32nd of his career.

Red Bull’s triple world champion Sebastian Vettel was fourth, 38.2 seconds behind Alonso, and saw his overall lead over Kimi Raikkonen cut to four points. Reuters
