Australia 2001 to Singapore 2022: This is Fernando Alonso's F1 .  was the first race of the 350 in

Fernando Alonso has been made Singapore Grand Prix In 350 in Formula 1. the driver with the most racesbest like this Kimi RaikkonenWho left the mark on 349. su debut 21 years ago was in Great Circus, in Australia 2001,

Alonso arrived by standing out from the lower ranges. Adrian Campos He noticed his talent, became his manager and led him down the Formula 1 road. After winning the Euro Open and excelling in Formula 3000, many F1 teams looked up to him.

ferrariA verbal agreement was reached with the Spaniard to sign for Ferrari and transfer it to the Prost team, with mediation by Jean Todt, but flavio briatore intervened. The Italian gave him the Renault . signed for (then renamed Benetton Renault) And gave it to MinardikThe team with which he would debut at Albert Park in 2001.

However, at that point Alonso didn’t have everything to be able to premiere that year: “I started with Minardi in 2001 and we couldn’t test the car before Australia. The team was going out of business, it went bankrupt, and Paul Stoddart came in at the last minute and took the car to Australia. “, The aviation tycoon was instrumental in Alonso’s debut in Formula 1. The Australian bought the team two months before the start of the World Cup and ensured Asturian’s presence on the grid.

That debut in Australia was “chaotic”, so much so that Alonso told an anecdote from his first free practice session in 2019: “We studied the wheel on Wednesdays and Thursdays of the Grand Prix. I remember I came out of the pit lane in the first free practice and there were cars lined up on the pit lane because the lights were red. I almost crashed them because I can’t find the neutral button”,

The debut race was not much better. Minardi, made in just two months, was uncompetitive. Alonso started 19th (out of 22 drivers). The race was won by Michael Schumacher and the Spaniard finished 12th, what would be the third best result of that season. Several retirements favored the Spaniard, who later ended up just ahead of both drivers on the visiting team, Giancarlo Fisichella and Jenson Button From Renault.

Then there will be a series of chapters that every fan knows by heart: a move to Renault, two world championships, a fight to the limit with Hamilton at McLaren, a ‘return home’, driving for Ferrari, suffering from Honda, a ‘WEC and See you later to try the Dakar, and return with Alpine to prove that age is just a number. All this after a chaotic first race. But there are already 350… and those left.

However, the race of 350 will not be particularly remembered. The ’14’ had to retire at Marina Bay when he finished sixth, while keeping Max Verstappen behind his alpine for several laps. A tragic grand prix the day he achieves a new historic milestone.
