Fernando Alonso watches podium from deckchair next to his own mural

He's the absolute boss

Fernando Alonso is not only one of the quickest drivers in F1, he's also one of the funniest.

At the 2015 Brazilian Grand Prix his McLaren-Honda broke down (naturally) during qualifying but rather than head straight back to the pits, Alonso decided to watch the rest of the session - and take in some sun - from a deckchair.

The image soon became a meme as people photoshopped the image all over the internet - and ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix, new F1 owners Liberty media decided to use the image as a basis for a huge mural underneath the podium.

Fernando himself seemed to love it, and after the race - in which he not only scored rare points but also incredible recorded the fastest lap of the race - he found a deckchair and watched the podium ceremony right next to the mural version of himself:

Don't ever change, Fernando...

  • That's why he's paid the big bucks... he's probably the best driver in F1 just needs the machinery to match his talent.
