Fernando Alonso: Net Worth and salary

Fernando Alonso has been established as one of the best drivers of his generation. The Spaniard was one driver who should never be underestimated. Even in a car that was not up to standard, he would wring out every ounce of performance and put it in places where it should not be.

Fernando’s net worth is estimated to be worth $200 million. His annual salary in his final F1 season was a whopping $32 million.

He made his debut in 2001 driving for Minardi at the time. It was also the same year the Kimi Raikkonen made his debut. In 2002, he became a test driver for Renault before graduating to a race seat in 2003.

After winning two back-to-back championships, he moved to McLaren. However, he returned to Renault a year later. In 2010, he joined Ferrari and raced for them until 2014. Finally, he returned back to McLaren in 2015 and stayed with them until he retired in 2018.

Shortly after retiring, Fernando Alonso and NASCAR legend Jimmie Johnson swapped rides as part of a special one-off event. The double World Champion drove Johnson’s Chevrolet Camaro by Hendrick Motorsports while Johnson took to the wheel of Alonso’s 2018 McLaren F1 car.

Fernando Alonso: Stats and On-track Achievements

Fernando Alonso is a double-world champion with the Renault F1 team. The maiden podium came in 2003 in just his second race for Renault at the Malaysian GP.

Later that year, the maiden win would follow at the Hungarian GP. He bagged a few more podiums in 2004 and in 2005, he wrestled the championship away from Michael Schumacher. That year, he won by a hefty 21 points from Kimi Raikkonen and Michael Schumacher was a further 60 points away.

2006 was a bit closer between him and Michael, with 13 points separating them. In 2007, Lewis Hamilton happened, and it was a tumultuous year for Alonso and new team, McLaren.

Beyond that year, the win count began to slowly dry up for the Spaniard. In 10 years he only picked up 13 wins. The 2013 Spanish Grand Prix was his last win for Ferrari and in Formula One.

In a F1 career spanning 17 years, Alonso started 311 Grands Prix, winning 32 races and clinching 97 podiums in the process. He also racked up 1899 points in the process.

It’s no secret that Alonso is aiming for the ‘triple crown’ in motorsport. The triple crown involves winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.

Alonso’s won in Monaco and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The Spaniard is keen to add another feather to his cap with a win at the Indy500.

Sadly, he’s been unlucky so far. In his first attempt in 2017, Alonso retired from the race, having led the race for a commendable 27 laps. In 2019, Alonso failed to qualify for the event following a multitude of issues, which weren’t entirely his own.

He’s set to compete in the 2020 event with Arrow McLaren SP.
