Alpine F1 History
The French Alpine F1 team is born out of the French Renault team in 2021.
In order to promote Groupe Renault's sports car brand, Alpine, the organization rebranded this Formula 1 team from simply Renault to Alpine. Due to sponsorship deals, the team is officially named BWT Alpine F1 team.
In its first Formula 1 season, the 2021 World Championship, the French team returned the Renault Group to a Grand Prix victory, as Esteban Ocon took a surprising win at the 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix in Budapest.
It was the group's first Formula 1 win since the 2008 Japanese Grand Prix and the first for an Enstone-based team since the 2013 Australian Grand Prix.
The team finished 2021 with another podium, as Fernando Alonso (champion with Renault in 2005 and 2006) finished third in the 2021 Qatar Grand Prix.
In its first Formula 1 season, Alpine finished fifth in the World Constructors' Championship with 155 points (81 from Alonso and 74 from Ocon). The results included one win, a podium, and five Top-5 finishes overall).
The first half of the 2022 Formula 1 season was quite strong for Alpine, with Esteban Ocon and Fernando Alonso scoring 99 points in that span of the championship. The points' tally put Alpine fourth in the World Constructors' Championship after the first half, behind Red Bull, Ferrari and Mercedes.
However, the summer break started with controversy, as Fernando Alonso announced on 1 August 2022 that he was leaving the team to join Aston Martin in 2023. After the news shocked even the Alpine management, the team announced reserve driver Oscar Piastri as Alonso's replacement for 2023.
However, the Australian, who won the 2021 F2 championship, announced that the news weren't true, and that he wasn't going to drive for Alpine in 2023.
