Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso won a dramatic Formula One Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday, giving the Italian team one of its more unlikely victories in its long history.

In a race that was stopped for 51 minutes because of rain, Alonso looked like he’d be overtaken by Sauber’s Sergio Perez until the Mexican ran off the track with six laps to go, giving the Ferrari enough of a gap to hang on.

Ferrari had been considered to be in crisis after a poor start to the season, but a superb display of wet-weather driving gave Alonso a memorable victory. Perez’s second-place finish was Sauber’s best-ever.

Pole-sitter Lewis Hamilton of McLaren finished third ahead of Red Bull’s Mark Webber and Lotus’ Kimi Raikkonen.
