Fernando Alonso

Formula 1 Betting 2012 - Fernando Alonso

Fernando Alonso is widely considered as the best all round driver in Formula 1 and he is the youngest ever double World Champion in Formula 1 history. Alonso won the World Championship in both 2005 and 2006 to achieve that remarkable feat. Fernando Alonso was born in Spain and was the third youngest person ever to make his debut in Formula 1 racing for the Minardi Tea in 2001.

Alonso quickly moved onto the Renault Team where he would have his greatest success by capturing those back-to-back titles. He showed his supreme abilities in winning those titles and he announced that from 2007 he would drive for the McLaren Mercedes Team. His stay at McLaren was a short one as after a season of struggle in which he reportedly fell out with both Team Bosses and Team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

After that controversial year he quickly moved back to the Renault Team for the 2008 season and even in a poor car he still managed to win 2 races and finish 5th overall in the Drivers Standings. Those wins more than anything confirmed Alonso's class and encouraged the Spaniard to sign a new contract with the Renault team.

If the Renault car performs well in 2009 then Fernando Alonso will definitely be one to watch as the Spaniards brilliant driving skills are sure to put him in contention come the end of the season.
