Alpine will have a new livery which has blue in it but features pink also. It is done in a nod to their new title sponsor BWT. Meanwhile, they have also presented a livery which has mostly pink colour in it. However, this special design will be used in the first two races of the 2022 season, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

Esteban Ocon won his maiden Grand Prix in Hungary last year. Ocon achieved this feat without pitting even once. Fernando Alonso finished fourth in the Hungary Grand Prix. They will be accompanied by Oscar Piastri who will be the reserve driver for Alpine.

It was Renault Group CEO Luca de Meo and Alpine CEO Laurent Rossi who led the presentation with the new team principal, Otmar Szafnauer. Otmar left the rivals, Aston Martin, in January and made his first appearance in Alpine colours.

Luca de Meo said, “It’s with great pleasure that we launch our A522 to the world today. We are marking the next chapter in Alpine’s Formula 1 journey. We have a clear plan and vision in place at Alpine. We also have some of the best people in the business to help drive us forward and realize our ambitions. Our team is stronger now and, we hope, future-proof.”

Ocon said, “I’m very excited, of course, to not only see the A522 for the first time but to drive it for the first time this week. It’s always a privilege to drive a new Formula 1 car for the first time. As you know all the hard work that has gone on behind the scenes at both factories in Enstone and Viry. Many talented people work in the different departments there.”

“That feeling and responsibility is truly unique and very special. I feel prepared, I feel ready physically, so let’s hit the track and see what we’ve got in our hands this year.”

Alonso added, “It’s good to be back and I’ve been working hard to be ready for the new season. The build-up has been a long time coming after the rule change was delayed due to the pandemic. The car looks fantastic with the new regulations in place and I like the new livery.”

“We have a new engine and we’re confident we had a good development in place for this new generation of car. We won’t know where everyone stands until Bahrain, but we’re excited to take the car for its first spin in testing this week. I hope the new regulations have worked and we get more exciting wheel-to-wheel racing this year.”

The pre-season testing will take place from 23rd to 25th February at the Circuit de Barcelona- Catalunya. Whereas, the second pre-season testing will be from 10th to 12th March in Bahrain. The season kick starts officially on 20th March with the Bahrain Grand Prix.
