London: Ferrari ace Fernando Alonso made up for his crash out from Sepang, Malaysia by scoring a winner at the Chinese Grand Prix on Sunday.

The Spaniard beat team Lotus`s Kimi Raikkonen by 10.1 seconds in a dry race dictated by tyre choices and frequent pit-stops, and roared out to victory in the GP.

The report further said that Mercedes ` Lewis Hamilton completed a trio of world champions on the podium with third place for his team after starting on pole.

According to reports, the win was Alonso`s first since Germany last July and was the 31st of his career, taking him to fourth in the all-time list, alongside Britain`s 1992 champion Nigel Mansell.

Red Bull`s triple champion Sebastian Vettel finished fourth, just 0.2 behind Hamilton, to retain the overall lead, with McLaren`s Jenson Button fifth to ensure five champions in the top five places.
