In profile

Alpine may be a relatively new name to Formula 1, but Renault’s famous sportscar arm has plenty of motorsport heritage. The 2021 rebrand of the team marked the next step in Renault’s F1 revival, begun in 2016 with the takeover of the then-Lotus squad.

2022

No podiums, but outperform arch rivals McLaren to rise to P4 in the final standings. Fernando Alonso, frustrated by reliability woes, departs at season's end for Aston Martin, to be replaced in 2023 by Pierre Gasly, forming all-French driver line-up with Esteban Ocon.

2021
