The F1 stable, which has changed from Renault to Alpine, will run in completely new colors next season.
Beginning there are two renamed teams in the formula 1 season. Racing Point became Aston Martin and Renault Alpine. Alpine is a sports car brand owned by Renault.
The Alpine F1 team represents two countries: France and the United Kingdom. This is reflected in the coloring of the new racer. Gone are Renault’s black and yellow, holding red, blue and white. The colors are the colors of the French and British flags, and the intention is to represent both countries. Renault is a French company, but the stable is headquartered in Enstone, England.
– We proudly represent the colors of France and England, as well as the famous and traditional competition colors of Alpine, ie blue, white and red. Here is our new car, the A521! Alpine glowed with her Twitter account.
They act as the race drivers for the stable Esteban Ocon and a veteran returning to the species after a two-year hiatus Fernando Alonso.
– When I see this car, I am proud that I am French, OCÓN praised the car launch event.
– They are technical amendments, what I have seen, are very encouraging. We want to fight in the last section of time trials and competitions for podium places.
Alonso won the world championships at Renault in 2005 and 2006.
Alpine is just the latest name change seen in Enstone’s stable. The stable was originally known as Toleman in the early 1980s. In 1986 the name was changed to Benetton, and by that name Michael sSchumacher won two world championships in the stable.
Renault bought Benetton for the season 2000. The name changed from Benetton to Renault in 2002.
In 2012, investment firm Genii Capital bought the majority of the team and renamed it the Lotus F1 Team. Renault returned as owner in 2015 and changed its name back to Renault in 2016.
Now with the brand collaboration, the Alpine era begins.
