Thursday was Fernando Alonso’s birthday, and the Ferrari team celebrated out of the glare of the public eye.
They aren’t exactly saying, but I think we all know what his present was.
Here’s the brief write-up:
Hungaroring, 29 July â€“ Scuderia Ferrari chose to celebrate Fernando Alonsoâ€™s birthday out of the glare of the spotlight, presenting the Spaniard, who turned twenty nine today, with a giant birthday cake here in Budapest for the twelfth round of the Formula 1 World Championship. The entire team turned out to wish Fernando the best and team principal Stefano Domenicali expressed the good wishes of all the Ferrari family.
Fernando was clearly moved by the occasion: â€œI will never forget this first birthday spent with you and I am speechless at the warmth of this gesture. To be here at the very track where I took my first ever Formula 1 win all goes to make this a truly magical moment. Thanks to all of you.â€
Fernando then went on to say: “Rod, could you please taste it first for me. Thanks. I thought I saw Felipe in the kitchen.”
