Fernando Alonso’s form is putting just about everyone on notice. Oakley’s former Formula 1 Champion, flying high with a competitive Ferrari F138 car, is in the thick of the battle for the top of the field – making his presence felt with a recent triumph in Shanghai. It almost looked too easy, actually. Claiming Scuderia Ferrari’s first victory on the season in China, Fernando smoked the field by more than 10 seconds – with fellow Oakley driver Kimi Raikkonen grabbing second.
Fernando Alonso was painfully close to claiming a glorious third World Title last season. Every racing fan would tell you that it was clearly his talent that catapulted him into contention, despite a slow start to the season with a less-than-ideal car. Coming down to the wire as the series raged into Brazil for the final race, glory was clearly within his grasp despite a sluggish early season. But this year, it’s a whole different ballgame.
The defending back-to-back Supercross Champion is reminding everyone just why he’s now accustomed to owning the field. Oakley’s Ryan Villopoto retook the standings lead with authority, claiming an impressive victory over fellow O ripper, Ryan Dungey, for his third straight Daytona triumph in four years.
