Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen, Jules Bianchi, Marc Gene and Raffaele Marciello join forces with the media in Germany for a Santander-sponsored karting showdown!

Scuderia Ferrari’s sponsor for the past five seasons, Santander Bank, organised a karting event tonight at a track in Walldorf, a few kilometres from the Hockenheimring, home to this weekend’s German Grand Prix. Winners of the event were Scuderia test driver Marc Gene and Catalan journalist from TV3, Albert Fabrega. Competitors were split into groups of four of different nationalities, with one team principal for each group.

The best drivers from each country then took on a team of Scuderia Ferrari drivers, featuring Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen, Jules Bianchi, a Scuderia test driver, on loan for the night from the Marussia F1 team, Marc Gene and Raffaele Marciello, a Ferrari Driver Academy student, in Hockenheim for round 6 of the GP2 series. The winner was decided by adding the points scored by the journalist to those of that nation’s allocated race driver, decided by a draw before the start of a race where the victory went to Fabrega.

Two of the world’s best known Formula 1 racing drivers – Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen – are adding their voices to the Turn Back Crime campaign.

Their video message, filmed with Scuderia Ferrari Team Principal, Marco Mattiacci, at Ferrari’s private Fiorano test track in Maranello, Italy, keeps the Turn Back Crime campaign at full throttle.

Alonso and Raikkonen are the latest high-profile figures to support the campaign, joining film star Jackie Chan, international footballer Lionel Messi, and Ducati Team, whose rider Andrea Dovizioso recently gained a podium place in the Moto Grand Prix.

These ambassadors want to inspire their millions of fans to play their role in protecting the things in life that we treasure the most. The Turn Back Crime campaign is about breaking down barriers between police and public; creating a dialogue to build a relationship of trust; an inclusive approach to help people feel safe and to help reduce the fear of any form of crime.

As part of this, it is crucial for people to understand better the crime issues of today and how they can better protect themselves and their families.

For example, buying fake goods, illicit medicines and counterfeited items isn’t about a cheaper option, it feeds organized crime and terrorism.

Turn Back Crime is gathering speed, thanks to support from Alonso, Raikkonen and others. Join them, join us, and keep the momentum going.
