Will Alpine's 2021 F1 car justify Alonso's faith?

Fernando Alonso's decision to come back to F1 after two years away wasn't about securing instant success with the rebranded Alpine team in 2021. But Alonso will be watching as closely as anyone to make sure that this rejigged team - with new management, an unexpected senior departure, and a revised technical team that came in too late to influence the 2020 car very much - is heading in the right direction. This year is about setting the groundwork for a real push in 2022, and Alpine needs to prove it is on the right track ahead of the major rules overhaul next year that it hopes will offer it a chance to vault up the order with Alonso on board.

  • Alonso will outperform the car, and should get a podium or two. He may even get a deserved win if things fall into place in a chaotic race. However, it's all irrelevant for any team as long as Mercedes and Hamilton continue to have a stranglehold on F1. I fully understand Alonso's frustration with being in the wrong car for so long, along with other drivers having the same less vocal sentiment. Such a shame it's all a Mercedes yawn fest with such talented drivers like Max and Fernando and Daniel and Charles being forced into impotence.

  • Apart from aero, I feel that a very important point has been overlooked - reliability. Renault has lost way too many points from running in good positions during the race but not being able to complete them due to PU failures. This was also one of Alonso's main frustrations with his past machinery. On positives, Danny Ric was able to save tires considerably more in 2020 than in 2019 so it is good to see that the Chassis is making big steps.

  • Personally I have a bad feeling about this re-brand. If it succeeds great, but if the team fails on delivering better performances I have a feeling Renault could pull the plug. Because it's now the "Alpine F1" division that won't look as bad internally as they can claim that Alpine failed and not Renault.

  • Not sure what's "corporate nonsense" about saying there's a strong symbolic gesture of having a duel-national flag livery. This is easily the coolest livery of 2021. I was hoping Aston Martin would do something striking with their livery similar to their Le-Mans cars but nah, it's just a flood of Aston Racing green, with no accent colour, or eye-catching graphics.

  • The battle for 3rd-6th will be tight this year. Ferrari should be making a come back given engine and rear end of car being sorted out. McL are looking hot with Merc power and Key designing the car. AMR = 2020 green Merc. AT will be the under dog poking at the other 3, hopefully making high risk, high reward calls to keep the others on their toes. Mid-field battle looks great. Of course, it all depends when they switch to 2022 if they have not done so already.

  • I don't think any team will not build an improvement version of their previous models. But all the teams will focus quite early on the 2022 car as they will have radical changes. Also, the performance changes that can be done through the season are marginal. So I am expecting a stable season. I guarantee a strong Ferrari as now they build a car based on an engine that they know its capabilities. Also this engine will be improved. I would say 3rd Ferrari. 4th Alpine 5th Mclaren 6th Aston Martin or Alpha Tauri.

  • Aston Martin, Ferrari, McLaren, are all focus on 2022. For Alpine they are focus on 3022. They are only looking for victories on a long term base. Is 100 years long enough that is the question ? With Renault they were looking to become champion within 3 or 5 years. If Kyvat or Ocon could only act as the new badboys than Alonso could perhaps become champion in 2021. Is Briatore back ?
