The amazing victory of Carlos Sainz in Silverstone was not the only record for Spanish motorsport in Formula 1. Fernando Alonso became the pilot with more kilometers traveled in the history of Formula 1 racing, surpassing Kimi raikkonen. In total they are 92,643 kilometers tours since he debuted in Australia 2001 with a minardi.
The official account of Formula 1 had a nice detail on social networks with the man from Oviedo, congratulating him on the mark achieved. Those almost 100,000 km are equivalent to 2,195 marathons, 2.3 times around the world and a quarter of the distance to the moon.
Regarding the latter, Alonso joked on social networks: “Let’s make (at least) half the way to the moon”. The two-time world champion has no intention of retiring any time soon. His good start to the season proves it. He has not been lucky, but performances like those of Canada either Britain show that it still has a lot to offer in Alpine.
Their renewal with the French team it seems that it can be announced before the summer break. Despite some clashes with members of the team, the Asturian is aware that, today, there is no better option than Alpine, and those of Enstone they know that Alonso’s experience and talent to develop single-seaters are not going to be available in the short term with Oscar Piastri. The Australian, except for a last-minute surprise, will run at least one season in Williamswaiting to have a place in Alpine.
