Fernando Alonso, a two-time Formula 1 World Champion with an impressive record of 32 race wins, admits that there were moments in the past when his self-confidence in his driving skills veered towards “overconfidence.”
Alonso has had a diverse and eventful history in Formula 1, often oscillating between being hailed as a hero or being criticized as a villain. His on-track performances have mirrored this trajectory. He experienced early success in the sport, clinching the World Championship titles in 2005 and 2006. However, it has been a decade since the 41-year-old Spaniard last tasted victory champagne, which he did at the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix.
