WHAT TO SAY TO A KING

2005-05-11 15:27

Or, on a Formula One podium in Spain, what did the king say to you?

"Nothing really special," Spain's man-of-the-moment Fernando Alonso said after finishing second at Barcelona.

"He said 'keep it up, because we enjoyed the race', something like that," Renault's 23-year-old revealed.

King Juan Carlos I, who once rode in McLaren's two-seater F1, also whispered a word in winning ace Kimi Raikkonen's ear.

"He came to see me before the race as well," said the Finn.

"He's a nice king." -GMM
