Formula One: I haven't met the new boss, admits Alonso

Fernando Alonso paid tribute Thursday to former Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali, who sensationally quit this week, and admitted that he had not even spoken to the new man at the helm. Domenicali stepped down on Monday, after a torrid start to the season, culminating most recently in the team's drivers trailing in ninth and 10th in Bahrain two weeks ago. "Stefano is a great man, first of all, and I am a close friend of his -- that is no secret," said Alonso in a press conference ahead of Sunday's Chinese Grand Prix.
