How Alonso won the title
Fernando Alonso misses out as Jenson Button wins the Hungarian Grand Prix
Budapest, 6 August 2006

Fernando Alonso - 100 points
Michael Schumacher - 90 points

The phrase "when it rains, it pours" seemed to sum up Renault's continuing troubles on a very wet Hungaroring circuit.

Alonso looked set to extend his championship lead until the Spaniard was forced to retire when a wheel nut came loose while he was heading for victory.

His only consolation was seeing Schumacher pick a solitary point for eighth as Jenson Button won his first Grand Prix victory.
