The Spanish driver Fernando Alonso , twice champion of the world of Formula One and champion of the World Cup of Resistance , said he must "value much more" Spain, which for him is " without doubt the best country in the world " with its "variety" , and was "sad" before the riots of the last week in Catalonia.

"I think we are undoubtedly the best country in the world and we should value it much more and be much happier, with our variety and everything. It makes me sad, I'm sad to see some images and hopefully everything is solved very quickly, because we have to be more proud of ourselves, "Alonso said in an act in Madrid.

The Asturian pilot, who presented on Monday a solidarity campaign with the environment of his clothing brand, Kimoa , said he sees "sadly" the situation of last week in Catalonia with the riots after the Supreme Court ruling in the trial the politicians of 'Procés', although he considered that it is something in which it is "difficult to say without being completely inside".

"I have traveled all over the world, I know most of the countries, and I assure you that there is no country like Spain , none. Not for its wealth, nor for its people, for its variety of character, gastronomy or customs", Fernando Alonso added.
