On 25 September 2005, he won the Formula One World Driver's Championship title at the age of 24 years and 58 days, breaking Emerson Fittipaldi's record of being the youngest Formula One World Drivers' Champion at the time. After retaining the title the following year, Alonso also became the youngest double Champion. In 2007, he became the second F1 driver to score at least 100 points for three consecutive seasons. Alonso acts as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF. In Formula One, he is often referred to as "the most complete driver on the grid" [1]

In an interview with Ferrari.com:

Q: Do you believe in God?
A: No. [2]


He was also interviewed by the Italian newspaper Corriere de la Sera [3]:

Q: Spaniards and Italian people are very Catholic. We have the Pope in Italy. Are you amongst the religious sportsmen? How is your relationship with God?
A: I don't have any relationship with God and I've never wanted it. I don't believe in fate or in any superior entity: if a plain crashes and people dies, it's not because Heaven said so.

(In Spanish: [4]).
