Early Career

Alonso participated in karting competitions around Spain from a very young age. He was supported by his father, who was also his mechanic.

His family lacked the money needed to build a career in motorsport, but his victories attracted sponsorship.

He won three consecutive karting championships in Spain and he became world karting champion in 1996.

Former Minardi F1 driver Adrián Campos signed Alonso to race for him in the 1999 Spanish Euro Open MoviStar by Nissan series.

Alonso secured the championship with one point over rival driver Manuel Giao by winning the last race of the season.

The following season Alonso moved up to Formula 3000 (often a precursor before moving to Formula One). Alonso joined Team Astromega and was without a point until the seventh race of the year. In the last two rounds he finished second and a scored a victory.

He placed fourth overall behind Bruno Junqueira, Nicolas Minassian and Mark Webber.

Formula One

In 2001 Alonso debuted with Minardi. He was the third youngest driver to start a Formula One race ever. His best finish was a tenth place in Germany.

In 2003 he moved to Renault. He became the youngest driver to sit in pole position. He took another pole together with victory in Hungary, lapping Schumacher in the process.

Still with Renault, Alonso scored seven victories in 2005 to become the sport’s youngest ever champion (then) at 24.

In 2007 he drove a season for McLaren, finishing third overall, but returned to Renault in 2008 following the Ferrari ‘spy scandal’.

In 2010 Alonso signed for Ferrari. He was unfortunate to miss out on the championship after the final race, in an otherwise strong season.

In 2011 and 2012 he has raced superbly, dueling with Red Bull’s often immaculate Vettel.
