Alonso wins the race of two halves in Valencia

Well, to borrow the vernacular from another competition taking place later this evening, that was a game of a two halves. 30 laps in and the Sunday Afternoon sofa was set to witness something it hadn’t seen for a while; eyelids had drooped and were all set to close.
