2005

In 2005 Fernando finally won the coveted World Championship. His stats for the season were spectacular: seven wins, six polls and 15 podiums. 2005 was another year in which Fernando made history: as the first Spaniard to become World Cup champion, as well as being the youngest winner ever. His country of birth was also keen to honour his achievement, in the form of the Prince of Asturias Award for Sport.
