Groupe Renault’s F1 Team Becomes Alpine F1 in 2021

Renault’s decision to rename its F1 team Alpine will give the latter a more influential position within the French brand.


  • Alpine is a Renault performance sub-brand.

  • It was responsible for the legendary A110.


Alpine is no stranger to performance. The company was established 65 years and quickly found success in motorsports with Renault products. In 1973, they were bought out by Renault and have produced some extremely memorable sports cars. As of 2021, the name Alpine will fittingly adorn the Renault’s F1 team.

Going as far back as the 1970s, Alpine was earning podiums with its now-legendary A110 in various endurance and rallying events. Going forward, Alpine, and the colours of French excellence, will have the opportunity to shine once again as the face of Renault’s Formula 1 efforts starting next year, for the 2021 F1 season. The cars will continue to benefit from Groupe Renault’s expertise in hybrid powertrains and its E-Tech name will be retained.

Luca De Meo, C.E.O Groupe Renault, had this to say about the announcement: “Alpine is a beautiful brand, powerful and vibrant, that brings a smile to the faces of its followers. By introducing Alpine, a symbol of French excellence, to the most prestigious of the world’s automotive disciplines, we are continuing the adventure of manufacturers in a renewed sport.  We are bringing a dream brand alongside the biggest names, for spectacular car races made and followed by enthusiasts. Alpine will also bring its values to the F1 paddock: elegance, ingenuity, and audacity.”
