Alonso breaks point’s record in F1



After the Japanese Grand Prix Fernando Alonso has achieved 1,571 points, beating seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher 1,566 at the top of the F1 career points table.

Both champions are extremely superior F1 drivers, so the statistics shifted Alonso to the top of the table.

“To see my name leading the point’s record for a sport like Formula 1 is something I never imagined. Thanks to everyone! 1571 points.” Alonso tweeted on his account.

Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali hailed Alonso’s appearance at the top of F1′s all-time point’s scorer’s chart as “proof of his extraordinary talent and something which makes us very proud”.
