The Alpine Formula 1 team unveiled this Thursday the design of the A521, the car with which the Spanish Fernando Alonso, two-time world champion, and the Frenchman Esteban Ocon will compete next season in Formula One.

The French brand – has joined forces with the Renault factory and its racing department to form a powerful team in the world motorsport championship under the Alpine flag – explained that the black color, present in the temporary design for winter, “It’s a tribute to the 1975 A500 F1 prototype.” In addition, on the rear of the car it includes the blue, white and red colors of the French flag.

This is how the prototype will look until the presentation of the new car, which will be held next February in an event that will feature the two officers of the house. “The livery unveiled today is the first evocation of Alpine’s new F1 team identity,” said Antony Villain, the brand’s director of design.

“I can’t wait to drive it for the first time on a circuit,” said Esteban Ocon. Alpine showed the A521 within the framework of the presentation of the strategic plan of the Renault Group, which will put the Formula One team at the center of the project and will bet for its sports range by one hundred percent electric technology.
