Fernando Alonso has raced his way to another Formula One victory…
The 31-year-old Spanish Formula One racing driver, who currently races for Ferrari, proved to be the gran campeón at the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai on Sunday, winning the third race of the year on the F1 circuit.
“The whole weekend has been unbelievable. The race was fantastic from start to finish,” said Alonso.
The two-time Formula One champion beat Lotus’ Finnish driver Kimi Raikkonen and Mercedes’ British driver Lewis Hamilton, who had to settle for second and third place, respectively.
“We didn’t have any problems, the tires wore out less than expected and after the withdrawal in Malaysia we took a second (place in Australia) and a first, so we have started well. I’m optimistic,” said Alonso.
Alonso, who won his last race at the 2012 German Grand Prix, covered 56 laps totaling 189 miles in 1:36:26.945.
The fourth Grand Prix race of the season will take place next weekend in Bahrain.
In all, El Nano, as he’s nicknamed, has a total of 31 career race wins.
