Viva Fernando by Colin Carter

Fernando Alonso, Renault R25, 2005 F1 World Champion. Having already become F1’s youngest Grand Prix winner in Hungary 2003, aged just 22, and earlier that year becoming the youngest ever pole-sitter, Fernando Alonso’s 2005 season was so mature and consistant that, after a magnificent start to the season, he was more than able to withstand the enormous pressure of Kimi Raikkonen’s assault during the latter part of the year. His third-placed finish at the Brazilian Grand Prix was sufficient for him, at just 24 years of age, to become the youngest ever F1 World Champion.
