Fernando Alonso Reacts to Renault’s Alpine F1 Transformation

Renault racing’s Cyril Abiteboul will be taking up the Alpine duties. The revival of the Alpine group a few years back triggered the possible conjunction of the two. Finally, from the 2021 season onwards, Renault will be racing in Formula 1 under a new identity.

The new Group CEO Luca De Meo reorganized the company and directed towards a proper reestablishment of the four major companies Renault, Dacia, Alpine, and New Mobility. French side Alpine will be making its debut in Formula 1 and as a result, the yellow-black Renault color will be replaced with the French color of red, white, and blue.

“This change comes at a key moment in the trajectory of the team and the sport,Luca De Meo said. “Alpine brings a new meaning, new values, and colors to the paddock with the spirit of competition from other worlds and French creative agility.

“These will be assets in the preparation of 2022 deadlines.”

The relationship between Alpine and Renault dates back to the 1960s. Although Alpine was set to enter F1 back in the 1970s, the opportunity was lost and Alpine was restricted in other motorsports events.

However, with the rebranding of Renault, Alpine is getting the opportunity to introduce the brand’s name in Formula 1 world.

Alpine is a beautiful brand, powerful and vibrant, that brings a smile to the faces of its followers. By introducing Alpine, a symbol of French excellence, to the most prestigious of the world’s automotive disciplines, we are continuing the adventure of manufacturers in a renewed sport.

“We are bringing a dream brand alongside the biggest names, for spectacular car races made and followed by enthusiasts. Alpine will also bring its values to the F1 paddock: elegance, ingenuity, and audacity.”
