Bring Back V10s Podcast: Alonso’s remarkable Minardi heroics

Jul 8 2021

Our Bring Back V10s classic Formula 1 tales podcast returns for its fourth series with a look back to the year when Fernando Alonso was just a little-known rookie in the worst car on the grid.

Mark Hughes and Edd Straw join host Glenn Freeman to revisit how Alonso took the backmarker Minardi team to heights that couldn’t have been expected, embarrassing more established drivers and teams along the way.

We also look at how close Minardi came to not racing at all in 2001, Alonso’s two-seater F1 car crash with Nigel Mansell (!), and why Renault took Alonso off the F1 grid for the following season.
