After a hard race with torrential rain and cars flying off the track Fernando Alonso won the European Grand Prix, snatching the lead from Ferrari’s Felipe Massa in the closing laps.

Although near the start it was sunny, on the formation lap it began to rain.Markus Winkelhock was the only one who choosed the wet tyres, which turned out to be a very good decision, but only for a short period.Winkelhock’s exciting day came to an end by the side of the track when his Spyker stopped with suspected hydraulic problems.

In the first corners, the two Bmw Sauber cars had contact with Lewis Hamilton who got tangled up to receive repairs from its engineers.

The rain was very bad, and this fact was seen by Jenson Button who skidded off track at turn one.This was only the beginning! Button was the first o six cars that aquaplaned and got off the track but this without any accidents.The six drivers who aquaplaned were: Adrian Sutil with its Spyker, Scott Speed with his Toro Rosso monopost, Rosberg, Hamilton, Anthony Davidson with its Super Aguria and Tonio Liuzzi who flew backwards down the track, barely missing the safety car, which had then been deployed later.

Because the track was very wet the safety car entered and the race was restarded after 15 minutes.Winkelhock lost his position because he was overtook by Alonso and Massa.

Because Raikkonen retired due to its mechanical problems and Lewis Hamilton was on 10th place, the fight was between Felipe Massa and Fernando Alonso.And it was a beautiful fight!They fighted,they bumped wheels and Alonso finally made it stick to snatch the lead. He immediately started pulling away from the Ferrari and Massa just didn’t have an answer.

Red Bull team had a very good day, placing their cars on the 3rd an 5th place(Mark Webber on 3rd and David Coulthard on 5th). Alexander Wurz placed with his Toyota monopost on the 4th place.
