Fernando Alonso was born in Oviedo, the capital of the Spanish region of Asturias in 1981. His father was an amateur kart racer and wanted to pass on his passion to his children. Already in his early years, Fernando was hooked. He raced whenever he could and won multiple titles already before finishing school.
His talent couldn't go unnoticed. Fernando was brought on a team in the late 90s.
In 2005, Alonso won seven victories and became the youngest ever World Champion. He would win the title a second time in 2006 with another seven victories.
His professional career continued with many other remarkable victories and personal challenges.
