Fernando Alonso is a natural leader with extraordinary drive and determination. He insists on his right to make up his mind, demand freedom of thought and action, and is committed to his goals without letting anything or anyone get in the way, just like the Richard Mille brand.
Fernando Alonso made his Formula One debut at Minardi in 2001, when he was less than 20 years old. The Spaniard is known for Flavio Briatore’s outstanding performance in the F3000. His new manager and Benetton-Renault boss placed the Spaniard in a small Italian team. He became the third young driver in Australian history to participate in the Grand Prix.
Throughout his early career, Alonso broke the precocious record. On August 24, 2003, he became the youngest GP champion at 22 years and 28 days in Hungary. Two years later, Renault became the youngest champion in the world with 24 years and 59 days. The following year, followed by the youngest double champion. Since then, all these records have been eclipsed, but they are still a symbol of the Spanish driver’s early success.
Fernando Alonso (Fernando Alonso) met Richard Mille (replica Richard Mille) before the brand cooperated with the Alonso (Alonso) McLaren F1 Team (McLaren F1 Team).
‘I met Richard on the runway before introducing us to the factory two or three years ago. Then, when we met, we found that we had a lot in common and had many friends in common, including Rafael Nadal. Richard can even speak some Spanish! He is a passionate, enthusiastic and energetic person. We are not just talking about races and Formula One cars, the subject of our conversation is actually sports cars. ’
‘I must be five or six years old. My grandfather gave me one of his watches on my birthday. I still have it. This is the first work in my modest collection. I don’t have any incredible or extremely rare watches, just good models that appeal to me. I like the watch on my wrist. Richard recently gave him a prototype in the color of my helmet, which surprised me. I am very proud of this. ’
In the past F1 season, Alonso has set his goal to win the triple crown in motorsports. This is the reward for the Monaco Grand Prix, the Indianapolis 500 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Graham Hill can do the history of racing.
The friendship between the driver and the watchmaker is so rich that Richard Mille became one of the first to know when Alonso decided to participate in the powerful Indianapolis 500 at the beginning of the 2017 season. Few active Formula One drivers dared to participate in this difficult track. In order to win, he had to give up a few laps at the finish line. By the way, he won the title of “Best Newcomer in the Event”.
On June 17, 2018, on the steering wheel of the Toyota TS050 hybrid car, he won the Le Mans 24 Hours with Kazuki Nakajima and Sébastien Buemi. This is the first time he has ever participated in a competition, which makes him take another step towards winning the Triple Crown. After 17 seasons in F1 and 312 Grand Prix in 2018, he retired from F1 and devoted himself entirely to WEC. After winning the 24-hour endurance race at Daytona in 2019, he won the 24-hour endurance race for the second time in a row and won the 2019 championship at the same time.
