The Spanish racing driver Fernando Alonso creates another record in F1

If you are aware of the quote “Age like a wine,” the Spanish racing driver Fernando Alonso is a perfect example. He made his F1 debut in 2001 when he was 20 years old, and after 22 years, he is still a part of the F1 grid and looks younger than other drivers. Well, in his F1 journey, he has broken several records, and after the 2024 season, he created a new record in F1 history.

The Spanish racing driver Fernando Alonso became the first driver in F1 history to compete in 20 seasons. He is the only driver in F1 history to compete in 20 or more seasons. Earlier, the record was held by Rubens Barrichello, Michael Schumacher, and Kimi Raikkonen, with 19 seasons each.

He began his F1 journey in 2001 with the Minardi F1 team but didn’t compete in the 2002 season. Later in the 2003 season, he raced for Renault, and since then, he has competed in every season until 2018.

After the 2018 season, he announced his retirement from Formula 1, but the sport brought him back in the 2021 season. As a result, he has competed in 20 seasons, after the 2024 season, he became the only driver in F1 history to have this achievement.
