Sep.15 (PVM) Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has again praised Fernando Alonso despite it looking almost certain that Red Bull‘s Sebastian Vettel is on the verge of claiming his second Formula 1 world title in as many years.

Di Montezemolo said in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, “Fernando Alonso is an extraordinary driver on track and very good off the track too. He manages to drag the team forward with his conviction and commitment.

The Ferrari boss also dished out praise to team principal Stefano Domenicali, saying, “He has become a true leader. They said we needed someone like (Ross) Brawn, but look how hard it is also proving for him with Mercedes.”
