Alpine owner Renault in F1 for long term

Renault is pledging its ongoing commitment to Formula 1, despite departed 2022 driver Fernando Alonso insisting Alpine was “happy with fourth” overall. Former two-time Renault champion Alonso, 41, made the switch over the winter to what he describes as the “more ambitious” Aston Martin project. However, Aston Martin finished just seventh last year, while Alpine was the best-placed team behind Red Bull, Ferrari and Mercedes – albeit a whopping 342 points adrift of third. “The gap to third was big,” team boss Otmar Szafnauer admitted as Renault-owned Alpine’s 2023 car was unveiled in London. We need less DNFs, more points, hopefully some podiums, and to get a lot closer to third than we were in 2022,” he added.
