Fernando Alonso Beoplay E8 Sport
Behind the collaboration
The limited edition Fernando Alonso Beoplay E8 Sport earphones have been designed to match the livery design of Alonso´s No. 66 Arrow McLaren SP car, while the superb sound quality make them a perfect choice when a driver is preparing for a race: channelling energy and focus on the task at hand whilst providing the ultimate soundtrack to balance the nerves and building adrenaline.
Q & A with Alonso before the race
This partnership marks a celebration of Fernando Alonso’s pursuit to become the second driver in history to attain the legendary Triple Crown at this year’s Indy 500, and came natural as music is a big part of Fernando Alonso’s routine when preparing for a race as well as being a long-time fan of the brand.
Watch the exclusive interview with Fernando before the race.
“I have always used music as a training companion for maximum performance and when I mentally prepare for a race. Music helps me balance my frame of mind before getting into the car, whilst building adrenaline for the challenge ahead.”
