Alpine 2024 F1 car launch date revealed

1 min read

The 2024 Alpine Formula 1 car will make its debut early in F1's so-called 'launch season', breaking cover on February 7.

It is understood the actual 2024 design will be present at the event - rather than just a liveried show car, as the relatively early date may have suggested - but the site of the presentation is yet to be announced.

What is known however is that the event, which has been dubbed the Alpine Motorsports Season Launch, will also incorporate the Renault-owned brand's World Endurance Championship programme.

It will therefore also serve as the season launch for its first go at the WEC's Hypercar class under LMDh regulations, with ex-Haas F1 driver Mick Schumacher among those signed up to represent Alpine in this foray.

An all-French line-up for Esteban Ocon and newcomer Pierre Gasly led Alpine to a sixth-place finish in last year's F1 constructors' standings.

Both brought home silverware during the season, but the Alpine A523 generally underwhelmed, largely finding itself in no man's land between the five top-echelon cars of 2023 and the four relative stragglers.

Ex-CEO Laurent Rossi, team principal Otmar Szafnauer, sporing director Alan Permane and chief technical officer Pat Fry were among those to move away or be moved away from Alpine during the disappointing campaign.

Bruno Famin, the interim team principal, remains effectively in charge of the operation heading into 2024.
