Fernando Alonso gave a wide-ranging interview to German television station RTL, the Spanish driver and German interviewer conducting the session in Italian, driving a special Italian car on very special German track. Among many answers – from the industriousness of his native Ovideo, Spain to where he relaxes – Alonso gives Ferrari an eight out of ten for the season, admitting they don't have the fastest car but they have a complete car, and refuses to give himself a number, only saying that he is more complete as well than when he first entered.

Beyond the normal-guy persona and wealth of topics, the 10-minute interview is neat for being able to watch Alonso hurl the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta over and around kerbs while he's answering questions. You can check it all out in the video below.

      An F 12 driven by non-other than Fernando Alonso along "the holy grail", awesome and priceless! Very few cars compare.

      "How do you get over a race that hasn't gone too well"? FA: I blame Massa for not helping me win...

      Interesting - about what I would expect from Alonso - competitive, very confident, doesn't show his cards and loyal to his employer. I sure hope somebody can step up and save the track. Love that F12.

      Oh my goodness, guys....this was from the GP of Germany.....TWO WEEKS ago! One day, you're impressing me by posting some solid Goodwood FoS coverage the Monday after...the next day back to the old habit of posting stuff that was covered by every other motorsport blog nearly two weeks ago.

        You know it takes time to actually put together videos like this? Even though the event happened 2 weeks ago doesn't mean the video was finished with its production.

        My first thought too... He looks like he needs an extra phone book.

      I found Alonso's actions during his time at McLaren pretty inexcusable, so I find anything he says hard to listen to, much less attach any importance to. The 'evil Alonso' facial hair doesn't help...
