    Re: 2013 Spanish F1 Grand Prix in Barcelona

    reginos:

    Alonso comes across as very sympathetic in this video. Perhaps, it's because he doesn't count Webber as one of his title rivals.

    No, its becuase he and Webber are good friends since long back... through times when they were title rivals and when they were not. Hence the complicit  and laid back atmosphere.

    What is Alonso's image in Spain. I don't mean about his ability in the car but his personality as a sporting figure?

    Hard to answer that... but they do know him better than non-spanish since, as is logical, him being spanish, he is not only known inside the track but also outside the track with TV interviews, etc were he is more relaxed like in this video we saw. In general, Kimi is very well liked, Webber as well, Shumi and Button too... but Hamilton, Vettel and Massa not at all.

    I think Alonso was very smart following his race win. He was quick to mention that people in Spain are "going through a tough time right now". His win gives people something to feel good about but, more importantly, he showed he is not forgetting them. It's a small gesture but these little things matter, even if it is only a token gesture.

    Re: 2013 Spanish F1 Grand Prix in Barcelona

    I agree with RBR owner, Dietrich Mateschitz. F1 has moved way too much towards being a tyre management challenge rather than being about racing on the limit.

    And Pirelli will be changing its tyres. Even from a safety perspective, too many tyres are delaminating totally, which is incredibly dangerous at high speed.

    Agree. Alonso's win was only possible due to the tyre fiasco.
