Career History

Outdrives a car clearly inferior to Red Bull and McLaren opposition to score one win and nine podiums, crushing team mate Felipe Massa in the process. Misses out on third place overall by a single point to Red Bull’s Mark Webber.
Authority over team mate Massa asserted with debut Ferrari win in Bahrain. Struggles at subsequent rounds, but returns to form by July. 47-point deficit to lead standings before final race, where poor pit strategy sees him miss out on title, despite five season wins.
Struggles to break clear of the midfield by an un-competitive Renault car. An unexpected pole in Hungary, but retires after losing a wheel following a bungled pit stop. Podium in Singapore. Signs for Ferrari for 2010.
Helps transform Renault’s R28 from a lacklustre performer into race-winning machinery. Scores back-to-back victories late in the season, including Formula One’s inaugural night race in Singapore. Fifth overall and commits to the team for another two years.
Third overall during a tumultuous first season with McLaren, clearly not getting on with teamate Lewis. Level on points with rookie Lewis Hamilton. Four wins, but relationship
with team deteriorates after Ferrari ‘spy scandal’ affair. Returns to Renault for 2008.
Dominates the first half of the season with Renault, with six wins in nine races. Fights off challenge from Michael Schumacher and Ferrari to successfully defend his 2005 drivers’ title.
Seven victories aid his route to becoming the sport’s youngest ever champion, aged just 24. Mature and measured in later races, bringing him the crown with two races to spare. Defeats Kimi Raikkonen in a quicker McLaren.
Ultimately disappointing season. Dominates team mate Jarno Trulli to finish fourth in the standings. Pole at Magny-Cours and four podiums, including second in France.
Quickly hailed as the next Michael Schumacher in the Renault. Becomes youngest ever pole sitter in Malaysia. Takes pole and victory in Hungary, lapping Schumacher in the process. Sixth in the standings.
Official test driver for Renault, putting in thousands of development kilometres. Also has one-off test with Jaguar.
Formula One debut season with Minardi. Best finish is a tenth place in Germany.
Moves to Formula 3000 with the Astromega team and scores a victory at the  challenging Spa-Francorchamps circuit. Finishes the championship in fourth.
Dominant performances in the Euro-Open Movistar Nissan single-seater series, with nine poles and six wins on his way to championship victory.
Runner-up in the European karting championship.
