Fernando Alonso will enjoy the psychological boost of spending the August break on top of the Formula One championship whatever happens in Hungary next weekend after a display Ferrari described as "perfect".
Alonso, who led from start to finish on his way to winning Sunday's German Grand Prix, has a 34-point lead over Red Bull's Mark Webber and is sure to lead the standings through to Spa in September.
Two wins and a second place in his last three races have put the 2005 and 2006 champion in a commanding position.
"It was like a 67-lap qualifying run," said the Ferrari team principal, Stefano Domenicali.
"I find it hard to remember watching from the pit wall such a tight race. Fernando was perfect, not one mistake, not one hesitation."Reuse content
