Mini Blog: Fernando Alonso and Oakley
Fernando Alonso is one of the world’s greatest Formula 1 drivers and in his illustrious career he has won 2 world championships and continues to be a force to be reckoned with as he leads this years driver’s championship. On 25th September 2005, he won his first Formula One World Driver’s Championship title at the age of 24 years and 58 days, at the time making him the youngest Formula One World Drivers’ Champion. After retaining the title the following year, Alonso also became the youngest double Champion at the time. Nicknamed El Nano, a typical pseudonym for Fernando in Asturias, his place of birth, Alonso acts as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF. His ability to take the sport and continue to exceed expectations is the reason why he has now become an official Oakley Sunglasses sponsor. You never catch him in and around the paddock without a set of Oakley Sunglasses on his face and here at Shade Station, we are preempting a signature range of Oakleys sooner rather than later and you can be sure we will have them on the virtual shelves just as soon as they are released!
