BIO: Fernando Alonso Díaz is a Spanish Formula One racing driver and a two-time World Champion who is currently racing for the Ferrari team. Former Minardi F1 driver Adrián Campos gave Alonso his first test in a race car in October 1998. Campos signed Alonso to race for him in the 1999 Spanish Euro Open MoviStar by Nissan series. Alonso took the championship by one point from championship rival Manuel Giao by winning and setting fastest lap at the last race of the season. The following season Alonso moved up to Formula 3000, which is often the final step for drivers before ascending to Formula One. Alonso joined Team Astromega and was the youngest driver in the series that year by eleven months. Alonso became the third-youngest driver ever to start a Formula One race when he made his debut with Minardi at the Australian Grand Prix. Alonso became a test driver for Renault in 2002 and did 1,642 laps of testing that year. The Spaniard then became the youngest driver to achieve a Formula One pole position at the Malaysian Grand Prix in 2003. On 25 September 2005, he won the Formula One World Driver's Championship title at the age of 24 years and 58 days, at the time making him the youngest Formula One World Drivers' Champion. In 2005, he was awarded with the Sports Prince of Asturias Award. Alonso won the first race of the 2006 season in Bahrain, overtaking Michael Schumacher after coming out of the pit lane with 18 laps left, after starting fourth. He joined McLaren in 2007, before returning to Renault for two seasons in 2008 and 2009, and in 2010, he joined Scuderia Ferrari.
