Two-time F1 world champion Fernando Alonso – who will drive for the Alpine F1 Team in 2021 – has already taken possession of his new company car.
The Renault F1 Team will become the Alpine F1 Team as of next year and the Spaniard Fernando Alonso will make his comeback in the Formula 1 championship with the French manufacturer’s team alongside the young Frenchman Esteban Ocon.
Renault F1 will be rebranded as Alpine F1 for the 2021 season! Here’s my take on a 2021 Alpine F1 livery using the brand’s original colours!🔥

After participating in the 2020 Indianapolis 500 Mile race where he finished in the top 20, Fernando Alonso will now start working with the Renault F1 team, especially in the simulator and by travelling to a few Grand Prix by the end of the year to see how the team works.
Following the last race of the 2020 season in Abu Dhabi, Alonso will officially become an Alpine driver and will start preparing for the 2021 season with his new team.
In the meantime, the Spaniard has already received his new company car, an Alpine A110 S, delivered this week by Alpine’s marketing director Bruce Pillard.
With a maximum power output of 292 hp, the A110S is the most powerful model in the A110 range. Equipped with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine, the turbocharger boost pressure is increased by 0.4 bar for improved performance.
The Alpine A110 S is also equipped with an automatic transmission with dual-clutch steering wheel paddles, 7 gears, enough to keep Fernando Alonso waiting until the end of the year? Probably not!
