Alonso crashes out of his 200th F1 race

Fernando Alonso crashed out of his 200th F1 race in Malaysia.

The Spanish driver, who took victory at the same circuit last year, looked set for a good race having qualified in third. However he damaged his front wing at Turn Two when he nudged Sebastian Vettel as he fought for the lead of the race.

Alonso chose to stay out on circuit with the damaged front wing rather than pit for a new one. Unfortunately the front wing broke and became wedged underneath his Ferrari on the finish straight causing him to slide into the Turn One run off area and see an early end to his 2013 Malaysian Grand Prix.
