RACE DEBRIEF

    The 2012 season was that crazy year when the first seven races of the year were won by seven different drivers. The first man to take a second victory that year was Fernando Alonso – and he did it in style around the streets of Valencia.

    Alonso, then driving for Ferrari, qualified down in 11th, but on race day he put in a typically battling performance to haul himself up the field, and eventually to the win, in front of his adoring home crowd.

    It was vintage Alonso, a race where he harried and hustled his way to victory – and you can watch the whole thing in the video above, in our latest classic race stream. Enjoy!
