Ferrari's Michael Schumacher won his home European Grand Prix on Sunday to prove the doubters wrong and put himself firmly back on the title trail.
Roared on by an ecstatic crowd of red-shirted German supporters, the seven times champion saw off Renault's Fernando Alonso to celebrate a record 86th victory of his career and second in a row.
Alonso, the 24-year-old champion, finished second and saw his overall lead over Schumacher cut to 13 points after five races.
The Spaniard has 44 points to Schumacher's 31. McLaren's Kimi Raikkonen has 23.
