Alpine’s confusing start as an F1 team explained

448 839 Näkymät

The F1 team formerly known as Renault has now officially relaunched as Alpine, but there are still a few unanswered questions with just a couple of months to go until the team will hit the track for pre-season testing. In this video Scott Mitchell looks at the team's preparations, and assesses if its incomplete management shake-up risks repeating some old Renault mistakes and will have a negative effect on the team.

  • Interim livery, refusal to release information on the leadership structure, no report at the Renault PR days I wonder if they got a big title sponsor in the works and are just keeping it hush hush until reveal? We find out Tuesday

  • I'm hoping to see one of the Volkswagen group join the sport. Either as a works team or as an engine supplier for Red Bull post-2025. Audi or Porsche most likely, but Lamborghini and Bugatti would be interesting too.

  • So is the alpine changes putting Renault back at some year zero stage? If so perhaps it makes sense why Ricciardo left, he wants a team that is on firmer footing as his chance for a title is getting slimmer with each year

  • Why are they scrimping on the blue in their livery? It should be equal to or greater than the red. After all, Blue was once the French racing color. (colour for you Brits.)

  • The Alpine name is being used so if it goes tits up everyone involved can turn their backs and state that Alpine has nothing to do with Renault . Nothing to see here folks still buy our cars, pretty please :P This is the equivalent of Mercedes calling there team Maybach or Ferrari changing its brand to Maserati. It suggests to me that Renault are giving it one last shot before quitting F1 again and don't want any possible bad publicity sticking to the Renault brand.

  • To me, this further reinforces that Renault is not long in F1. They have opted with Alonso instead of cultivating talent from their development program. They no longer provide engines to any of the teams. They have axed leadership. The rebrand is essentially a soft withdrawl of the Renault name from the sport. Renault the company is likely feeling the pinch that the economy is imposing on their major stakeholder, the French government. They want to allocate the remaining resources they DO have more judiciously, and that means involvement in Formula-E and the like to promote their electric car investments. Alpine the brand is also likely a short-lived product, unless they decide to make that electric as well further down the road. There isn't much of a financial case to be made these days for ICE performance cars.

  • This team is actually my least favorite in F1. It was different when Nico or Daniel have been there, but with Alonso and Ocon, there is realy nothing I like about it. The livery looks pathetic. The whole team-principle trouble is a joke. Renault is not showing the absolute desire, that is nessecary, to be successful. I don't see a straight plan going on there. They're hirering and releaving people with no real thought. They had Carlos and Daniel, two of the best drivers in the field, and let them go. They were Lotus and then switched to Renault and now they want to be Alpine. What does this team stand for? Its and absolute mess, and it indicates, that my prediction, when they announced Alonsos return, is coming true. They will have a very bad season. I don't mind, I don't care about them. But for the sport, I hope I'm wrong, and they surprise me. But I'm not very hopeful...

Then again, I am Australian, and from my perspective, given the awful customer service European manufactures give here, the fucking deserve it! I would hate for the team to fail though. So much work has gone into building it to be a competitive team, and that work could so easily go down the drain if it isn’t done right! Fingers crossed for everyone at Enstone!

  • Well, that seem odd. Considered how smooth and natural the Aston Martin rebrand went, this could spark potential disaster. Then again, due to the freeze of the most parts it might have not as much of an impact to the 2021 campaign. Hopefully they'll sort themselves out before it could impact 2022.

  • From the outside looking in, this seems typical. From the easiest going guy, Danny Ric, deciding to leave after just one season to the resigning of a washed up driver, Alonso, nobody else wants. The whole rebranding of team from a recognizable brand to one I'm sure most have never heard of seemed off from the beginning. Cyril leaving is the cherry on top. Now learning about their internal power structure makes for a clearer picture. I will be shocked if they aren't fighting with the likes of Williams, Haas, and Alfa Romeo at the rear of the championship table at season's end.
