Fernando Alonso will be participating in his 200th Grand Prix this weekend in Malaysia although it will be his 198th Formula 1 race start on Sunday.

The 31-year-old had failed to start the 2001 Belgian GP after the gearbox in his Minardi gave up and the United States GP in 2005 as all the cars on Michelin tyres - including Alonso’s Renault - pulled out of the race for safety reasons after the warm up lap.

As a result, the double world champion will be starting his 200th race in Bahrain next month.

“It is definitely an important number: 200 Grands Prix is possibly over the halfway point in a career isn’t it!," teammate Felipe Massa said. "It’s a nice occasion. He has driven so many great races and won two championship titles and so this is definitely a special moment, so congratulations to him for that.”
