About Fernando Alonso

Fernando Alonso was born in Oviedo, Spain on July 29, 1981. He started karting at three and won several national and international titles as a junior. He made his Formula 1 debut in 2001 with Minardi, becoming the third-youngest driver to start a race. He moved to Renault in 2002 and became a test driver for the team.

In 2003, he became a full-time driver for Renault and won his first race in Hungary, becoming the youngest race winner in F1 history. He also scored four podiums and finished sixth in the championship.

Early Life

Alonso’s passion for racing was influenced by his father, Jose Luis Alonso, an amateur kart racer and mechanic. Alonso’s mother, Ana Díaz, worked in a department store. Alonso has an older sister named Lorena, who is a doctor. Alonso grew up in a modest apartment in Oviedo and attended a public school.

He was a good student but also devoted much time to karting. He received his first kart as a present from his father when he was three years old and soon showed his talent and speed. He competed in various regional and national championships and won several titles. He also participated in international events such as the Junior World Cup and the European Championship.


Alonso’s F1 career took off in 2005 when he won his first world championship with Renault, beating Kimi Raikkonen and Michael Schumacher. He became the youngest world champion in F1 history and the first Spanish driver to win the title. 

He joined Ferrari in 2010, hoping to emulate his idol, Schumacher. Alonso stayed with Ferrari until 2014 but failed to win another title despite coming close twice.

He rejoined McLaren in 2015, hoping to revive the team’s glory days with Honda as their engine supplier. However, the partnership was a disaster, as McLaren-Honda struggled with reliability and power issues for three years. 

Alonso decided to take a break from F1 at the end of 2018 and pursue other racing challenges. He competed in the World Endurance Championship (WEC) with Toyota Gazoo Racing. He won the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hours twice (in 2018 and 2019), becoming only the second driver after Graham Hill to win both Le Mans and F1 titles. He also won the WEC title with Toyota in 2018-19.
