Alonso wins European Grand Prix
Fernando Alonso of Ferrari won the European Grand Prix on Sunday to become the first driver to win two races this season, while Michael Schumacher earned his first podium since returning to Formula One by coming in third.
Alonso jousted his way up from 11th on the starting grid on Valencia's 3.3-mile street circuit notoriously tough for overtaking. Pole-sitter Sebastian Vettel's Red Bull stalled on the track midway through the race.
Kimi Raikkonen of Lotus finished second, while Schumacher reached the podium after Lewis Hamilton and Pastor Maldonado collided on the penultimate lap as they fought for third place.
Two-time champion Alonso moved into first place in the points standings with this 29th career win.
