Aged only thirty-six, Fernando Alonso has been a centrepiece of the Formula One calendar since he made his debut in 2001.
In a career spanning the Schumacher era and his own back-to-back World Championship titles in 2005 and 2006, up to his running battles with Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton, Alonso is widely seen as one of the greatest Formula One drivers of all time. For the first time Alonso will give his own candid account of his meteoric trajectory on the Formula One circuit, which many consider one of the most rigorous organizations in worldwide sports, one fraught with bitter rivalries.
Starting with his first buggy races as a child and covering the sacrifices he and his family were forced to make to help him to compete at an international level, Alonso's story charts every turn in his rise to the heights of motorsports. At his pinnacle he destroyed record after record, and he is adored by fans around the world, who have followed his every move, especially when he decided, in 2017, to shoot for one of the mythic trials of motorsports, the Indy 500, one of the three events that make up the Triple Crown.
