Alpine F1 unveils its winter colours!

Alpine teases new look for F1 team as 'Renaulution' plan revealed

As well as bringing a new name and auto to the F1 grid in 2021, Alpine will have a new driver line-up - with two-time world champion Fernando Alonso returning to join Esteban Ocon - although Cyril Abiteboul will not lead the team.

"The signing of this [memorandum of understanding] with Lotus shows the lean and smart approach we're implementing as part of the new Alpine brand strategy".

As part of the launch, a teaser of the 2021 livery was shown via an interim livery, featuring a black base with red, white and blue colours adorning the rear of the vehicle and the trim of the front and rear wings.

"The design of the Renault 5 Prototype is based on the R5, a cult model of our heritage", said Vidal, Renault's new design director.

Early renders for the rebranded F1 team were also unveiled, including a "temporary winter livery" that is predominantly black with Alpine's blue, white and red logo adorning the engine cover, paying tribute to the A500 F1 prototype from 1975. The "oversized" Alpine emblem in a tricolour graphics system is the first clear-cut symbol of the brand's identity in motorsport.

Alpine teases new look for F1 team as 'Renaulution' plan revealed

Renault have revealed the new look of their Formula 1 team after releasing the first images of an Alpine F1 livery ahead of the 2021 rebrand.

Today Renault revealed 'Renaulution' an ambitious new turnaround plan to prepare La Regie for the electric age, but sitting front and centre is this - a stunning Renault 5 EV prototype. "Numerous variations on all the motorsport assets are still to come". That red stripe is likely a nod to the hot hatch version dubbed Renault 5 GT Turbo back in the day, which may hint its modern-day EV counterpart will spawn a performance derivative.

Alpine's future road vehicle product plan is also fully-electric, and is set to make use of technology and learnings from its F1 squad moving forward.

"We'll be on the tracks and on the roads, authentic and high-tech, disruptive and passionate".

Apart from that, Laurent Rossi has been brought in as the Alpine CEO, with speculation that ex-Suzuki MotoGP chief Davide Brivio could be brought in as the F1 team CEO.
