Fernando Alonso finishes second in Hungary

Fernando Alonso celebrates a second place finish at the Hungaroring, stopping Red Bull from achieving a 1-2 finish. Alonso was saved a little by Vettel's Safety Car problems and subsequent penalty, but this race, and the previous victory in Germany saw the beginning of a fightback for Ferrari.

Whilst Massa struggled to recover from his magnanimity in Hockenheim, Alonso kept hold of the momentum and became a real championship contender. By the time Abu Dhabi rolled around, he was leading the race for the title - although we know that the race at Yas Marina did not go his way.
