Alonso greets ecstatic home fans

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso thanks his home fans for coming out to support him by running into the crowd before the Spanish Grand Prix.

Alonso is the main reason for Spain's interest in Formula 1, and the double world champion stopped out on track during the drivers' parade to throw his cap into the crowd before running along the fence high-fiving his loyal fans.

Alonso starts fifth on the grid for Sunday's race in Catalunya.
