It has taken us by surprise, but it is already here. Fernando Alonso’s new car is called Alpine A521 and Renault has put it long on the great day of the French brand. The car with which Alonso is going to return to Formula 1 looks, as expected, very similar to last season.
Further, Alpine has not yet shown the final colors of the car. The yellow is gone, but what has been shown for the moment is a completely black car with the French flag on the rear. That detail is expected to remain, but the rest of the car will likely take on blue hues.
In February there will be another presentation with the final colors
Luca de Meo, the president of the Renault Group, has shown very determined to place Formula 1 at the center of his project, showing a very high commitment to the competition, something that until just a few months ago was not so clear. The signing of Fernando Alonso has been a morale boost for the brand.
Alpine’s new CEO, Laurent Rossi, has further confirmed that in February there will be a second presentation in which the final colors of the car can already be seen. Dark blue hues, like the one Alpine already sports in the WEC, are very likely to have passed over black. The yellow will disappear.
Let’s remember that the Alpine driver couple this season back to Formula 1 is going to be Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon. The cars have not undergone too many changes compared to the end of the 2020 seasonas this new year is simply a hasty extension of COVID-19.

Besides Alonso, Alpine has also added Davide Brivio to its technical team, the Italian who just a few months ago made Joan Mir a MotoGP champion with Suzuki and who had previously led the golden years of Yamaha with Valentino Rossi. An exciting addition to leading the team that keeps Alpine very hopeful about its future.
