For many years now it has also been the only team to build every part of its single-seaters in-house: chassis, engine, gearbox, suspension. By the end of 2011, Ferrari had won a total of 15 Drivers' and 16 Constructors' titles. It also holds the record for the greatest number of wins (219), pole positions (207) and fastest laps (228). A total of 71 drivers have driven officially for Ferrari in Formula 1, 37 of whom have won at least one Grand Prix. It should be pointed out that the World Constructors' title was only established in 1958. Had it been created in the same year as the Drivers' title, Ferrari would have won it in 1951, 1952, 1953, 1954 and 1956 too. 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.
