Fernando Alonso won ice races in both karts and Fiat 500s as Ferrari and Ducati's week-long Wrooom festivities came to an end at Italy's Madonna di Campiglio ski resort this evening.
The ice racing event has become a traditional conclusion to Wrooom, and this year was a two-leg contest that started in karts. Alonso led a Ferrari Formula 1 team one-two ahead of Felipe Massa in this race, with Ducati's Nicky Hayden third.
His new MotoGP team-mate Valentino Rossi was fifth, behind Ferrari protege Jules Bianchi, but ahead of the team's other test drivers Marc Gene and Giancarlo Fisichella.
Alonso was unbeatable again when the field switched to the small Fiat saloons, as this time Ducati duo Hayden and Rossi completed the podium.
The evening also saw outgoing Ferrari test driver Luca Badoer make his final appearance for the team by demonstrating a 2009 Ferrari F1 car on the frozen lake using studded tyres.
