Spanish Formula One racing driver Fernando Alonso seems set on shaking up the Grand Prix world anew this season as he once again poises his Scuderia Ferrari via peek podium finishes, just reinforced by a local hero win at the Spanish Grand Prix. As a two-time World Champion, he always catches the attention of racing fans adoring a passionate winner with that intense fire in his eyes for victory.

This season’s favored spec for this driver is the Oakley style TwoFace with Violet Iridium lenses also sported in 20/20’s current SPECtator Sport feature in this issue.
