Alonso (then and now)
D’ya want to know how competitive Fernando Alonso really is? Well we have to go back to his school days to find out. Up to the age of eight he used to lie when he didn’t win.
Friends would ask the young Fernando how he got on in his latest kart race and he’d reply with great pride: “He ganado” “I won.” But the truth was that he’d used to cry his eyes out if he wasn’t first. That ultra competitive streak continued with him into F1.
