Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso has registered podium finishes in all three races so far this season – he also now has more points than the whole of last season
Fernando Alonso is giving it his all to register the 33rd Grand Prix win of his career. He has made an incredible start to the 2023 F1 season and accumulated 65 points from just three races so far – Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Australia. To put it into context, it is already more than his overall season haul of 55 points that he managed to earn last season while driving for BWT Alpine.
The astounding stat was shared on social media by Formula One’s official handle, asking fans to predict how many points the Spaniard will earn by the end of the season. Alonso himself replied to the post on Twitter with a cryptic message which reads: “33.333.333”.
Fans have been trying to decide the message which possibly has multiple meanings. It could very well mean that Alonso is fully focused on winning the 33rd Grand Prix of his career or it could possibly mean he is aiming for his 3rd F1 World Championship title. No one can say that for sure, barring Alonso of course!
Fernando Alonso has made an incredible start to the 2023 F1 season
Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso has made an epic start to the season, registering P3 finishes in three consecutive races so far this season. The 41-year-old has now bagged 65 points from three races, showing the world that he has still got it in him to challenge the best in the grid and everyone can’t help but admire the Spaniard’s grit and determination.
The two-time World Champion joined Aston Martin from Alpine ahead of this season, with an ambition to take the world by storm and the project has certainly got off to an epic start.
In his illustrious career till date, Fernando Alonso has won two F1 world championships – 2005 and 2006 with Renault. In an F1 career spanning over 20 years, Alonso has driven for top tier teams like Renault, McLaren and Ferrari besides Alpine, whom he represented last season. The veteran Spaniard has registered 32 Grand Prix wins along with 100 podium finishes. He is certainly one of the greatest drivers in the sport and would look to reach new heights at Aston Martin, during what possibly is the final lap of his F1 career.
