The Race of Champions

A thorough analysis of the battle on track between Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso and the battle of wits between their Ferrari and Renault teams

There was no question as to the main talking point in the paddock after the San Marino Grand Prix - it wasn't so much the way Ferrari won, but the way Renault lost, that captured the attention.

No one paying any heed to how the respective strategies appeared to be unfolding could quite understand when Fernando Alonso peeled into the pits on lap 41, when it seemed all he had to do was to be a little patient and victory would come his way. Instead, within a lap, Michael Schumacher, who appeared to have no chance, made his second and final stop. He managed to emerge still safely in the lead.
