About Fernando Alonso Fernando Alonso was born in Oviedo on 29 th July 1981. His father had dreamed as a child of racing karts and he tried to instill this passion in his eldest daughter, Lorena, who at the age of eight tried her hand in a kart built by her father. It was not a great success, so it was time for little Fernando to have a go at the tender age of three. Thus began a career that would lead to the Formula 1 World Championship Titles in 2005 and 2006.
