Renault will rename its Formula 1 team after its Alpine brand for the 2021 season. Alpineis a niche French sportscar marque that has long associations with Renault. The company is aiming to promote it as the performance end of its road-car range.

Is Renault going to move up on the grid? They have some interesting results on their score card.

I personally think this is as good as they will get.. Renault and Ferrari's Turbo disadvantage will hold them back till 2021. And honestly unless F1 and FIA allow some leeway in Engine Regs in 2022, Renault and Ferrari Powered cars will hold a disadvantage over Merc and Honda with Merc having the Ultimate edge.

Renault definitely seem to have an upper hand over Ferrari at the moment.

Having said that, I really hope to see Dany on at least 1 podium this year,, Actually I just want to see that tattoo on Cyril :laughing:

Alonso is suppose to test 2020 vehicle on the German track. Is Renault going to built now a racer around Alonso (as he had it in Ferrari), to the detriment of Ocon, or they will find balance between those two drivers?

Nobel prices are gone, Brad. When Cyril Abiteboul (TP) said about experienced Alonso will help them to built a better car, which would be noble aim under any circumstances, however based on his historical patterns building better cars, I thought Ocon should be deeply concerned.

Looks like Alonso likes F1 car. Pity we cannot get full story how he feels about new Renault. (Maybe first question today should be - how is your neck?)

Strange headlines.

Gasly ‘eyeing Renault seat next to Alonso’

What is that suppose to mean? I have nothing against Gasly, but I didn't know that Ocon is an endangered species at Renault. One French man replacing another? Why not take Alonso out from line up? Lord knows Alonso is in age when he could sit on a bench, enjoy the movie, and play with his grand kids.

Saturday 31 Oktober at 08:35 : Oct.31 (GMM) Racing Point vetoed Fernando Alonso's participation in the end of season 'young driver test' in Abu Dhabi.

My apology for being succinct after reading news.

WTF?

FIA makes exception to rules for Alonso

This is no good. Rules should apply to all without exception. This rulling is however a slippery slope. Once you start, where it ends? Next time someone else will ask for exemption for something else, and before too long any rules will become utter joke and meaningless. Just like contracts are these days.

Indeed Sakae  rules R rules
HAVE 2 start on the SAME tyres, as qualified ...
> Car goes into Park Ferme
Just because the car IS in Park Ferme - where R the rules HAVE 2 use THAT car  ??
These mechanics R FAST guys
On the way 2 the grid WHEN released from Park Ferme ...
Switch car, put the QUALIFYIN tyes ON
It IS consistent WITH the rules !!! 
Can Open, worms  everywhere !!!

Alpine are doomed. Alonso will steer them off in his weird "front end" black hole and they will waste years trying to do what Alonso asks for... only to see no benefits. Once Alonso is gone they will then have to re-do everything to try to catchup to where they used to be.

 

Plus the team is run by Cyril. Seeing how rude and disrespectful he was to Kimi, I wish him nothing but glorious failure and humiliation. It's amazing how many team principals keeps their jobs when clearly results don't seem to matter.

It is not a bad idea to let drivers to test, but then make it so for everyone who wants it, not just Alonso. Change rules first.

I am sure Sainz wants to test this year car, or Vettel RP, and probably many more.
