Fernando Alonso now has his own press secretary.

The lovely Roberta Vallorosi, who has recently been working in Ferrari's press office, came to the specialist media's attention as the 'Wrooom' event in the Italian Dolomites came to an end.

On stage after the farewell dinner, Alonso took the microphone and announced he would be performing a magic card trick.

He called upon the help of Roberta Vallorosi. "She worked with Valentino Rossi and now she is my press secretary," said Alonso in fluent Italian, according to O Estado de S.Paulo.

Alonso then also called MotoGP great Rossi onto the stage to be his second assistant, and performed an elaborate card trick using props including a condom and a teddy bear.

"How was that possible?" Rossi marvelled after the Ferrari driver retrieved the missing card.
