Fernando Alonso: Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

Fernando Alonso has been established as one of the best drivers of his generation. The Spaniard is one driver who should never be underestimated. Even in a car that was not up to the mark, 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 $240 million. His annual salary in his final F1 season was a whopping $33 million.

He made his debut in 2001 driving for Minardi. It was also the same year that Kimi Raikkonen made his debut. In 2002, he joined forces with Renault in the capacity of a test driver 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 to McLaren in 2015 and stayed with them until his retirement 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.

However, Alonso’s ‘retirement’ from Formula 1 didn’t last very long. In July 2020, Alonso announced his return to the pinnacle of motorsport with Renault in 2021. Coming full circle, Alonso is set to rejoin the French team, having completed 2 previous stints with the Enstone outfit.

The Spaniard will partner Esteban Ocon at Renault next season. He will stay with the team until the end of 2022.

Fernando Alonso: Stats and On-track Achievements

Fernando Alonso is a double-World Champion with the Renault F1 team. His maiden podium came in 2003 in what was just his second race for Renault at the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Later that year, the maiden win would follow at the Hungarian Grand Prix. 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 ahead of Kimi Raikkonen, and Michael Schumacher was held off by a 60 point void.

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 his new team, McLaren.

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

In an 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.

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 has triumphed 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 series of issues, which weren’t entirely of his own making. He’s set to compete in the 2020 event with Arrow McLaren SP.
