Fernando Alonso, the 42-year-old F1 old cookie who had won a double back in 2005 and 2006 with Renault, said in an interview later this week that he is certain about reaching 400-races landmark at his career. In the matter of the fact, latest remarks from Alonso came forth as a record awaits for in Singapore GP, where he will break Kimi Raikkonen’s tally of 349 F1 starts. On top of that, age appears to have little impact on Alonso, as the 42-year-old showed little intent to slow down. Alonso, who is often contemplated as one of the finest drivers that F1 has ever witnessed, had recently signed off a multi-year contract with Aston Martin, suggesting that he would have at least 48 races by end-2024, if FIA commits to settle down on 24 events a year.
Alonso said he would reach 400-races milestone by late-2024
Speaking with a press agency later this week, Alonso has expressed an out and out optimism that he would reach 400-races landmark by late-2024. Besides, adding that he would likely to reach the 400-races landmark by late-2024, Alonso said, “I know the number [of starts] because every weekend we keep repeating it, but I'm not into this so much.
I'm happy to be in Formula 1 for so many years, and with the two more coming, or whatever, however long I will be in Formula 1. I will reach 400 for sure, so that's a big number. It shows my passion for the sport and my discipline to perform at the high level.
