After all their pre-season problems and struggles in qualifying, it was a sweet moment for the Italian outfit as Alonso came from P8 on the grid to win the rain-affected race at the Sepang International Circuit.
The plaudits, though, will go to Perez and Sauber as the Mexican put in the drive of his life to claim his first podium finish. Pole-sitter Lewis Hamilton finished a distant P3 and he was followed across the finish line by Mark Webber and Kimi Raikkonen.
Bruno Senna was P5 and claimed his first points for Williams while Paul di Resta was P6. Rookie Jean-Eric Vergne claimed his first points in F1 with a P7 while Nico Hulkenberg and Michael Schumacher followed him.
After a 50-minute rain delay, Alonso took the lead and opened an eight-second gap over Perez, but the Mexican put in fastest lap after fastest lap to close the gap. He had a chance to pass the Ferrari driver on lap 51, but he ran wide and spurned the chance.
It was all about holding station after that and he did it comfortably to finish behind the Spaniard.
