Fernando Alonso won the kart race on the frozen lake at Madonna di Campiglio, despite being knocked into a spin at the first corner of the first event by his team mate Felipe Massa. He fought through the field and won the heat by bumping Ducati rider Nicky Hayden out of the way.
“I always knew he was a dirty dawg,” joked the Kentuckian later.
The grid for the second heat was the reverse of the finishing order of Heat 1 so Alonso started eighth and then raced his way through the field to win with Giancarlo Fisichella grabbing second while Felipe Massa fought back after an early incident to finish third.
Much fun was had by all.
