How Alonso won the title
Renault's nose cones which contain the mass damper (left) and Schumacher in Germany (right)
Hockenheim, 30 July 2006

Fernando Alonso - 100 points
Michael Schumacher - 89 points

Renault, so dominant in the first half of the season, saw their fortunes continue to worsen with the banning of their "mass damper" system in late July.

The FIA's decision forced the team - already struggling against a resurgent Ferrari - to remove the counterweight device from inside the nose of their cars.

At the next race, in Germany, Alonso suffered tyre problems and mustered only fifth as Schumacher took a third straight win.
