    ALPINE - Name change for Renault in 2021

    The Renault F1 team shall be rebranded "Alpine" from next season, named after their sportcar brand. This is to coincide with the release of the 2012 concept car to replace the Alpine A110-50. The new car shown below shall be called the Alpine A110-ZAR.



    This car has the coolest backend l have seen on a sports car for a while.





    It would seem the arrival of Aston Martin and the decision by Mercedes to bring their sportcar brand AMG unto their car from 2021 has given Renault reason to give their sportscar a presence in F1 also. It is a smart marketing gimmic that gives both the parent company and their Alpine brand a combined exposure on the F1 platform.

    A very poor decision. Shows that Renault management is being run by know-nothing MBAs.

    I can't understand why manufacturers are bringing back their old sportscar brands and changing team names. What does it bring them? Who knows about Abarth, Alpine or AMG apart from some maniac gearheads, which are some 5% of society?
