The Alpine Formula 1 team has revealed a first look at its rebrand with an interim livery on a 2020 Renault, ahead of the full launch of its new ‘A521’ car next month.
For the sixth season of Renault’s works entry, it has opted to give its niche performance sub-brand Alpine the full F1 treatment as part of a major restructuring of the company and its assets.
The so-called winter livery can not count on much support, however of course the drivers were very enthusiastic, but many Formula 1 followers do not like it. After all, it is the black Renault, with only the accents of a French flag. Fans of the team expected more, especially with the return of Fernando Alonso.
The Mild Seven blue of 2005 and 2006 will not return, but Will Buxton for example let it be known that he hopes Alpine will come up with something better at the start of the season. Erik van Haren is also happy that the livery will change and Joe Saward calls the livery “rubbish”. Alpine will have to come up with something better to convince the crowd.
