Fernando Alonso defends "sense of humour"

Fernando Alonso has defended his "sense of humour" during second practice in Brazil.

Like last year, when he borrowed a marshal's chair after an early exit from practice in Brazil, the two-time champion caused another social media storm after he took over from an official F1 cameraman.

When asked to explain, Alonso said: "In difficult times it's important not to lose a sense of humour.

"Last year, the big topic of discussion was when I sat on a folding chair, so I tried to find one today when the car stopped. I couldn't find one so then I saw the TV camera," he grinned.
