Ferrari fans don’t forget Fernando Alonso and the Spaniard responds
Fernando Alonso left an indelible mark on Ferrari. Beyond their 11 victories, the ‘tifosi’ do not forget their bravery and their class at the wheel in defending the shield of the Prancing Horse around the world and their exploits, remaining on the verge of winning two world titles, in 2010 and 2012, losing the two crowns on the last appointment. Everyone at Ferrari is clear that at least one of these two titles should have gone to the Asturian, to add his photo and his car to the Hall of Victories of the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Maranello, where the last champion after Michael Schumacher is Kimi Raikkonen (2007). For this reason, it is not surprising how much they talk about the Asturians in Maranello and the nostalgia with which they remember their battles dressed in red. Same nostalgia at Ristorante Montana, where the famous “Mamma Rosella” talks about him as if he were her son. And in Monza it was not going to be less. The ‘tifosi’, every time Fernando returns to this track, remind him how much they continue to support him for what he fought for on the track by defending their interests. Proof of this are the banners that hang in the main stand, just in front of the Spaniard’s box, to give him strength for this Sunday’s race.
“Beyond the color, you will always be our Fernandone”, one can read in one of them. “Go, Fernando, go!, on the other, in white letters on a red background.
“How do you feel when you see the banners dedicated to you in the stands?” he was asked after qualifying when the Spaniard stood up to Spanish media, including Mundo Deportivo.
“I didn’t see it, so I didn’t feel anything,” he joked between laughs. And it is precisely the banner with the phrase in his honor that is under the main stand and from Alonso’s box it is covered by the protective wall of But when he discovered it he showed his gratitude : “It makes me excited, logically, that they remember you and that there is always this affection that I had in Italy. I felt like my second home here”.
