Renault changes skin in 2021: it will be called Alpine and will wear the colors of the French flag

Fernando Alonso's next car in Formula 1 will neither be called Renault nor will it wear the yellow and black colors that the team is wearing right now. In 2021, Renault will be called the Alpine F1 Team, it will feature a Renault E-Tech hybrid engine and its racing car will carry the national colors of France: red, white and blue.

“Alpine is a beautiful, powerful and vibrant brand that makes its fans smile,” Renault CEO Luca de Meo said in a statement. “We are bringing a dream brand alongside the biggest names. Alpine will also bring its values to the F1 paddock: elegance, ingenuity and fearlessness,” the statement added.

At a loss, Renault, under De Meo's leadership, had announced a new organizational structure focused on major brands rather than geographic regions, with Renault F1 team principal Cyril Abiteboul overseeing one of the four divisions.

The car firm Alpine thus enters Formula 1 with a car that will have hybrid engines from Renault, which will maintain its E-Tech name. With the signing of the 'Concorde Agreements', with the budgets capped and the implementation of new technical regulations from 2022, Renault seeks to achieve new successes with its new colors.
