Citi Private Bank ardently congratulates Fernando Alonso for his
impressive win at The 24 Hours of Le Mans this past weekend.
Mr. Alonso, who is also a two time Formula One World Champion, most
recently competed and won the Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps in May. In
January he debuted at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Previously he
participated in the Indianapolis 500 in May of 2017. He was sponsored by
Citi Private Bank for all four races.
Alongside the Indianapolis 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix, Le Mans makes
up one third of ‘the Triple Crown of Motor Racing’. Having already won
Monaco twice, Mr. Alonso is on a quest to become only the second driver
in history to complete the Triple Crown.
“Fernando drove one the most thrilling races at Le Mans that I have ever
seen. His stunning night time drive will likely go down as one of the
greatest victories in motorsport’s history,” said Peter Clive
Charrington, Global Head of Citi Private Bank. “Fernando possesses an
unrelenting drive toward excellence. This coupled with his humility and
professionalism makes him an asset to any team and resonates deeply with
the leadership standards we pride ourselves on here at Citi and
challenges us each day to be the best for our clients. We are honored to
have taken this journey with him.”
