Fernando Alonso Presented with Ferrari FF for Winning Malaysian GP

Motorsport

No wonder he was grinning so widely after taking home the checkered flag over the weekend.

Ferrari loves to win, and given their rich history of winning more grand prix races than any other team in F1, their recent barren spell must have been very painful. So when Fernando Alonso stormed to victory at last weekend's Malaysian grand prix there was real cause for celebration at the Maranello camp. As is customary, Alonso headed to Ferrari's headquarters after winning the season's second race for a chat with chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo.

There then followed a spot of gym work before the traditional raising of the flag which is run up at the entrance to the Scuderia department after every victory. The two-time world champion was then presented with a brand-new Ferrari FF as a thank you gift. There's every chance the four-seat V12-powered shooting brake was a contractual bonus, but we'd like to think it was simply a gesture of appreciation. Since signing with Ferrari, Alonso has been rewarded with plenty of beautiful cars including a custom 458 Italia, a Maserati GranTurismo Convertible and a special edition Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. Sometimes, I think I'm in the wrong job.
