SHANGHAI, CHINA - OCTOBER 16:  Fernando Alonso of Spain and Renault celebrates with the team

Exactly 20 years ago today Fernando Alonso crossed the line in P1 at the Hungarian Grand Prix to take his maiden Formula 1 victory. It was the first of 32 wins to date – and though he hasn’t added to that tally for a decade now, the Spaniard remains hopeful of a 33rd triumph – especially given Aston Martin’s impressive speed this season.

Alonso is a driver capable of delivering race wins that others would find impossible to achieve. Whether it’s dominating from the front, battling through from down the order, or hauling an iffy car to top spot, he is a driver with the ability to pull off results that are not merely wins, but racing and tactical masterclasses.
