Banking and insurance giant – and let’s not forget the principal sponsor of Ferrari – has insured Fernando Alonso’s thumbs for €10 million!

Alonso Thumbs Personally, I’d have insured all of the fingers! The insurance giant announced the policy signing overnight at Madrid, in the lead-up to Alonso’s home grand prix this weekend.

"Being at risk in my profession made me understand that protection is a fundamental aspect," Fernando said at the media function. "I knew that Santander is the best bank in the world but now I have also discovered that they are leaders in insurance, so I could only choose one of the best possible partners in this field."

Who wrote those lines for you, Fernando?
