Massa spins Alonso out in Ferrari ice kart race

F1 video

Fernando Alonso didn’t get much help from his team mate in Ferrari’s ice kart races at the Madonna di Campigilio.

As the video above shows, Felipe Massa tipped him into a spin early in the first race.

However Alonso bounced back to win the event outright. Adding a further touch of theatre he crossed the finishing line backwards as team principal Stefano Domenicali waved the chequered flag.

    2:16 is the best overtaking of this race

    Nice touch using a Ferrari FF as the safety car. Felipe definitely needed some red turtle-shells though.

    Dovi didn’t look very happy with Alonso’s pass – race drivers! :D

    Terrible driving from Massa! But his crash was a racing accident. The big news is that Badoer was not last!

    Be the only time in 2013 that Massa is able/allowed to overtake Alonso, glad he made the most of his opportunity!

    Domenicali: “That’s why we have team orders”

  6. I think that looks absolutely brilliant! All the more reason to do an F1 ice race!

    I thought Red Bull were the ‘Fun Team’?

    ha ha ha, Alonso’s revenge will take all year long right?

    Seriously, Massa’s driving looked terrible througout the entire video…

    I don’t really see how it’s supposed to be Massa’s fault. He held his line perfectly straight. That Alonso then decides to move right is hardly his fault.
    But great event. I think that its fantastic that Ferrari organizes this kind of thing.

    It didn’t look like Massa’s fault. I think Alonso’s rear end got a little happy at the braking so they just touched a bit, which was enough to make you spin on ice. :)

    That looked pretty damn fun :)

    So basically Alonso won twice coming from the back of the field!? Pwnt. :D

    And yeah, it looked so much fun.
