The 2021 season will mean the return to the Formula 1 of one of the idols of recent years: Fernando Alonso. The Spaniard left the category in 2018, after a frustrated second time with the team Mclaren, where his best result was a fifth place in the Australian Grand Prix. However, this time he will do it with a more competitive car that had better results.
This Thursday the first details of the car that the Spanish and his partner will use were known, Esteban Ocon. The design of the new car Alpine, which will replace the historic team Renault, it will be the one that is used at least in the preseason tests. The date of the winter tests was not yet known. However, everything indicates that they will take place in Bahrain, weeks before the first race.
This Wednesday the Renault team ‘ceased to exist’ on social networks. The official account of the French team changed its username and account. This kicked off the arrival of the Alpine team to Formula 1. The engines of the car will continue to be of the diamond brand, although the colors will be different.
In a video that was released this Thursday on social networks, the ‘new’ structure made public the design that they will use in the preseason tests. In the video you can see a totally black car, with details of the French flag on its sides and on the engine cover of the car. Although the video was published today, the structure confirmed that the team’s final colors will be known in February.
“We are proud to present our 2021 Formula 1 car, the A521, dressed in his temporary winter livery. The black color is a tribute to the 1975 A500 F1 prototype ″, they said from the French team. Alpine had already tried to enter the top flight, a project that was frustrated. In the sixties he made the A350 car, while in 1975 the A500.
