In 1996 he won the World Junior Karting title and he continued in karts for another 3 years until he moved into car racing in the Nissan Open series in Spain. He won the title at his first attempt and then moved into Formula 3000 backed by Telefonica.

He raced for Team Astromega, won the race at Spa and finished fourth in the series. He was signed to a management contract by Flavio Briatore and was soon named as a Minardi test driver. In 2001 he became the number one driver for the team.

After an impressive first season Fernando Alonso became the Renault test driver in 2002 with the knowledge that he would move into the race team in 2003. This did happen and he won his first G. P.in August at the Hungary race.

The 2005 Formula One Champion and the youngest ever. What's in store for him next year and will Schumi and Kimi Raikkonen be able to mount decent challenges?
