"All the other wins I had this year," said the title-leading Spaniard, referring to Malaysia, Bahrain and Imola, "I led from start to finish."

The 23-year-old Alonso, although hunting an ailing Kimi Raikkonen down, led only when it mattered - on the last lap, after the McLaren crashed.

He grinned: "For me, this is a much better feeling."

Asked how he felt after driving through Kimi's debris, Fernando added: "I was obviously happy for myself. I think my car was quicker than the McLaren today."
