Alpine, Renault backing Andretti’s F1 bid

Alpine has emerged in support of Michael Andretti’s bid to add an eleventh team to Formula 1. Although the enthusiasm of Liberty Media, the FIA and at least half of the existing teams has been lacklustre, former driver Andretti’s former F1 employer – McLaren – is in support. “With an American team and driver, interest would explode,” he added. The objection of many existing F1 teams, however, is that an eleventh team effectively dilutes the value of their entries. Unsurprisingly, Alpine CEO Laurent Rossi is a supporter of the Andretti bid – with team owner Renault having struck a deal to be the engine supplier.
