Fernando Alonso rejuvenated his title hopes and gave Ferrari a win at home in Sunday's Italian Grand Prix, outpitting McLaren and Jenson Button, who finished second.

Hamilton's pain was only made worse by the fact Mark Webber had another terrible start, battling all day to finish sixth, yet the Australian still leads the championship by five points.

Sebastian Vettel finish fourth in the best of the Red Bulls, despite a scare with the engine.

Just 24 points separate the top five drivers with just five to go. In the constructors race, Red Bull holds a slim three point edge on McLaren.
