Alonso tops in ice races as Wrooom ends
15 January, 2011
Jan.15 (PVM) Fernando Alonso claimed victory in both ice races at Madonna di Camoilglio on the final evening of the Philip Morris International backed Wrooom media and all round fun event for the Ferrari F1 team and the Ducati MotoGP team.
The final act saw Alonso do the double in the traditional race on the frozen lake, which also featured the drivers and riders from the two teams and was kicked off by Luca Badoer saying his final farewell after his long career as the Scuderia’s test driver.
The first race in ice-karts saw the Spanish driver beat team-mate Felipe Massa and the American Ducati Marlboro rider, Nicky Hayden who finished third. Behind the trio came the Maranello team’s new test driver Jules Bianchi, followed by Ducati’s Valentino Rossi and the Ferrari men, Marc Gene and Giancarlo Fisichella.
The finishing order was used to set the grid for the second ice race in Fiat 500s, when again Alonso managed to keep the lead and win despite the Safety Car came out with five laps to go. Hayden was second and Rossi third.
Giancarlo Fisichella won the skiing prize for being the fastest man down the slopes.
