Fernando Alonso, McLaren

Two time Formula 1 World Champion Fernando Alonso prepares to hit the track in his orange #14 McLaren MCL32, pictured here. His unparalleled talent in a F1 car lends itself in part to his highly successful karting career, winning three championships in a row - including a world championship in 1996. Since joining the highest class of single-seat auto racing in 2001, there has been no looking back for the Oviedo-native. With 279 Grand Prix starts under his belt (among which 32 wins and almost 100 podiums) at age 36, Alonso has become one of the most respected driver in the history of the sport for both his experience and speed.
