“And yes, he taught me and taught me in different ways and more for different things in life. When I was young, he had no vision that I would become a professional pilot. Yeah he was racing go-karts and stuff, but he just thought it was over. And, you know, my life would be the complete opposite of professional sports. So he was always… down to earth, let’s say, and taught me everything and other values ​​because it was hard to believe that I would make it to Formula 1 one day. Our story is beautiful.” announced Fernando Alonso.

José Luís had to adjust the pedals so that little Fernando could reach and drive that rudimentary kart with Ayrton Senna’s McLaren-Honda colors. From here, his father was a key figure in his ascent to F1.
