There was one question everyone wanted to ask Fernando Alonso in Valencia this week - what's the story with the severe new haircut?
Not surprisingly, the cynics had already suggested it was done to appease Ron Dennis' desire for neatness and uniformity, which contrasts so starkly with Flavio Briatore's preference for a more colourful, shaggy approach.
"It was not a McLaren decision," smiled Fernando. "It was completely my decision. I wanted to cut my hair last year, but I'm so superstitious, and I didn't want to cut my power."
