Team Principal & Drivers
Formally Renault, well, basically still Renault as Alpine is just Renault’s sports car name. That’s not the headline though, Fernando Alonso coming back to the team he won his two championships with is.
After a year out and prior to that a number of years struggling in a McLaren with a Honda engine, has he come back thinking Alpine have something up their sleeve this year? In my mind, this team can do one of two things, fight it out at the front of the midfield, trying to secure 4th or 5th in the constructors’ championship, or they’ve tempted Fernando Alonso back because they have a secret weapon we don’t know about yet, have they persuaded him that they have a winning car this year? Fernando did say he would only return if someone could provide him with a winning car.
I’m very excited to be back in Formula 1 and to be part of the Alpine F1 Team’s next chapter in the sport. I’ve been working hard to prepare myself for racing back in Formula 1 and the target is to attack from the beginning.
Hmmm, it gets the mind racing. If you haven’t seen the Alpine car yet, it looks stunning, but that means nothing if it isn’t winning races. This team know all about winning and they have two drivers capable of doing just that, let’s see what they’ve put underneath them this year. They would’ve been able to concentrate on themselves more this year as they now have no customer teams, since McLaren’s move to Mercedes power.
Alpine has gone back to the winning colour of blue but this time a stunning metallic colour. During the launch, they released a fantastic video showing the F1 car racing through the Alps. This is a French team with a head office in Enstone England and they know how to win. This is an extension of the 2020 car, but they feel that they should consistently in Q3 and with Fernando Alonso they could well surprise us all and start winning again. It’s unlikely, and Fernando has probably been sold on ideas for 2022, but you never know. It’s great to have a name like Alpine in F!.
