Fans of Fernando Alonso have a new reason to celebrate. Already considered as one of the best Formula One drivers ever, this Spanish-born race car driver already has two world championships. While he is currently driving for McLaren-Honda, he won’t be joining this year’s Monaco Grand Prix in order to get the chance to be part of the Indianapolis 500.
That is not all that is keeping him busy though as it turns out Alonso will be adding in fashion label businessman to his list of achievements. For those who know him, Alonso is an individual who is not happy with settling for what comes easy for him. Rather he is a person who wants to go beyond the limits in order to have new experiences and have new adventures.
This latest venture has him investing in Kimoa, a fashion lifestyle brand he put up in partnership with some of his friends. It took at least 18 months to set things up but Kimoa has finally been launched a few months ago.Read the entire article Fernando Alonso enters fashion industry by investing in lifestyle brand Kimoa
Fernando Alonso, two-time Formula 1 champion and who also represents McLaren in F1, will be skipping the Monaco Grand Prix this month. Jenson Button will substitute for him. But why? To drive the #29 entry McLaren-Honda-Andretti at IndyCar’s flagship event in Indianapolis.
At the IndyCar event, Alonso will be driving a papaya orange car just like the one he drives in Formula 1 2017. The Woking-based team decided they would bring back its iconic former colour this year. Johnny Rutherford won the Indy 500 twice in 1974 and 1976 with the McLaren, painted in papaya orange on both races.
The Spaniard racer had to complete a rookie test and said that it was a “fun” experience for him. All drivers who will race at Indianapolis for the first time are required to take this test, and only those who pass can enter the 500-mile event.Read the entire article Alonso skips Formula 1 to race at IndyCar’s flagship event this May
Kimi Raikkonen of Lotus F1 Team placed second at the recently concluded Spanish Grand Prix behind Fernando Alonso, marking the fifth straight race this season that a Renault-powered car made a podium finish. Raikkonen’s second-place finish at the Spanish Grand Prix is his fourth podium in five races as well as his third consecutive podium finish, allowing him to further trim the lead in the driver’s championship race to just four points.
He has 85 points while Infiniti Red Bull Racing driver and current leader Sebastian Vettel has 89. Vettel came in fourth at the Spanish Grand Prix, with fellow Infiniti Red Bull Racing driver Mark Webber coming at fifth. Williams F1 Team’s Pastor Maldonado finished the race in 14th after losing some time with a drivethrough penalty for exceeding the pitlane speed limit.
Teammate Valtteri Bottas was 16th. Charles Pic of the Caterham F1 Team finished was 17th. All these drivers piloted Renault-powered cars. But, not all Renault-powered drivers made it to the finish line, as Lotus F1’s Romain Grosjean retired on lap eight with a broken rear suspension, while Caterham’s Giedo van der Garde retired on lap 21 due to loose left rear wheel. Renault-powered teams started their run of podium finishes in Australia. Infiniti Red Bull Racing (131) and Lotus F1 Team (117) are first and third in the constructors’ championship. Renault-powered teams have garnered a total of 242 points this year.Read the entire article Fernando Alsonso won the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix
How Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso won the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim was nothing short of spectacular as he fended off formidable rivals such as Sebastian Vettel and Jenson Button. There was no obvious winner as it was a close race until the final laps. McLaren’s Jenson Button had been pestering Alonso, which was barely able to maintain the lead.
But when there were only five laps left, the Spaniard made better progress as he lapped backmarkers when Button’s tires had begun to fade. Alonso was then able to get ahead, eliminating the possible late attack posed by the DRS drag reduction system.
With this win, Alonso is now ahead of Red Bull’s Mark Webber by 34 points in the world championship race. The Australian only managed an eighth-place finish for this race. After Button failed in his attempt in the later part of the race to get past Alonso, Button was challenged by Red Bull’s Vettel.Read the entire article Fernando Alonso wins the 2012 German Grand Prix for Ferrari
The recent victory of Ferrari's Fernando Alonso at the 2012 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe in Valencia last Sunday was anything but predictable. In this race, not even Lewis Hamilton or Sebastian Vettel finished the race. Meanwhile, Alonso started at 11th place but was able to get back its lead in the world championship.
During the first 34 laps, Red Bull’s Vettel dominated in the winding track round the Spanish port. From Vettel’s pole position, he couldn’t be bumped off the lead as Hamilton kept Lotus’ Romain Grosjean stuck behind his McLaren. Finally, Grosjean was able to get past Hamilton on the tenth lap. However, Grosjean didn’t get anywhere near beating Vettel as a mainly processional race went past its halfway point.
On the 27th lap, Jean-Eric Vergne's Toro Rosso crashed into Heikki Kovalainen's Caterham. As a result, the safety car had to be deployed on the 28th. This closed up the field until the 34th lap when racing resumed. Vettel instantly got back into the lead but by the end of the lap, Red Bull had stopped by the side of the track. Alonso was gradually climbing from the start when he got to eighth place.Read the entire article Fernando Alonso victorious at the 2012 Grand Prix of Europe
At the Malaysian Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso was able to hold off Sergio Perez to take the prize amid changing weather and a long red flag. With Alfonso’s win, Ferrari is brought to the forefront of the race and takes lead for later nabbing the world championship. But then, Perez committed a late error and mistakenly passed the double champion to get what was likely to be one of Formula 1's most astonishing wins ever for Sauber.
Lewis Hamilton took the podium too with Jenson Button (his McLaren team-mate) after the race. Sebastian Vettel was also unable to reach a score that’s the result of participating in a traffic clash. While that’s going on, Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber took fourth place ahead of Lotus’ Kimi Raikkonen and Williams’ Bruno Senna.
A large part of the field used intermediates for the start, which took place on a track dry in certain parts but very wet in others. The McLarens took their grid formation into the first corner, as Romain Grosjean and Michael Schumacher fended off Fernando Alonso who held off Sergio Perez spinning as the Lotus slid into the Mercedes. This enabled Red Bull co-drivers Mark Webber and Vettel to take third and fourth, before Alonso. When the rain started, Sauber immediately put Perez straight into extreme wet tires.Read the entire article Fernando Alonso won the 2012 Malaysian Grand Prix
The two Scuderia Ferrari drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa have engaged in a most unusual parallel slalom race, with the snow-capped mountains of Madonna di Campiglio in the backdrop. They went head to head through the gates at the wheel of two Ferrari FFs, which is the revolutionary four-seater four-wheel-drive Prancing Horse vehicle.
The vehicle proved to be very entertaining as they drove on the slopes of the demanding hills and as they undertook endless changes of direction laid out on the downhill slalom course.
Alonso and Massa were able to safely handle the 660 horsepower V12 in the very low grip environment due to the essential 4WD traction system. This system deals with the frequently changing and variable amount of torque on each wheel independently, with fully integrated electronic control systems.Read the entire article Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa race on snow with latest Ferrari FF
The last generation of the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano that will be released in January 2012 will be more impressive than any version it has had so far (except for the 599XX race car). According to Teamspeed and FerrariChat, Ferrari is currently building a final version of the car, which will likely use the Ferrari 599 Fernando Alonso edition designation.
For the car to pay a proper tribute to the F1 driver, it needs to be more agile. This means that the car will be lighter. Ferrari is expected to build fewer than 40 units of this model.
But before this last generation model arrives, fans are taking inspiration from the F10 Tribute Edition, which Alonso has recently driven.Read the entire article Ferrari preparing the 599 GTB Alonso Edition
Fernando Alonso, who has always been the Red Bull’s dangerman, has brought Ferrari back in Victory Lane last Sunday afternoon with a performance that owed a little to a delay during the second pit stop of Sebastian Vettel.
Having lost valuable time in the pits with a problem in a rear wheel, Vettel was 16.5s adrift of the Spaniard by the flag. He had teammate Mark Webber behind him and threatening to pass until team boss Christian Horner told them to “maintain the gap” while they struggled with their tires in the closing laps.
On their tail were McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari’s Felipe Massa who were running in the fourth place.Read the entire article Fernando Alonso wins the 2011 British Grand Prix
