The lion roars once more. Just when it looked like Fernando Alonso was done with F1® and as his 40s loomed, the combative Spaniard has come back to where he made his name – and has lost none of his trademark tenacity and bull-at-a-gate approach.
Fernando Alonso

Alonso won his two world titles at Renault, now rebranded as Alpine, in 2005-06, taking on the might of Michael Schumacher and ending Ferrari's red reign over an era that, until Mercedes started winning in 2014, was unprecedented. That Alonso returns this year to race against, amongst others, Schumacher's rookie son Mick speaks to his longevity and need for speed.

While adding to his 32 career wins (sixth all-time) is a short-term long shot as Alpine tries to conquer F1's midfield, expect the Spaniard to outperform his machinery and leave no stone unturned in his quest to unlock more performance. It's the only way he knows.
