“I’ve been waiting for this car for a year and a half,” said the Spanish driver Fernando Alonso when the Alpine car for 2022 was presented, with which the double world champion hopes to be able to fight to win races.

The 2022 Formula 1 season will be marked by the new competition regulations, called to equalize the teams and end the dominance of Mercedes and Red Bull.

“That’s why I came back” after two years away from Formula 1, Alonso declared in English at the event organized by Alpine (former Renault).

“I hope that with the new regulations everything will change (…) I have been waiting a year and a half for this car and the team has done a fantastic job building this car. We are all very motivated », he added.

Like last year, Alonso will have Frenchman Esteban Ocon as his teammate.

Waiting for what the new single-seater will give on the track, one of the great novelties is the exterior, since Alpine’s traditional blue color has been joined this year by the pink color of one of its main sponsors, BWT (a Austrian water treatment company).

“Life in pink”, highlighted the executive president of Renault Luca de Meo playing with the title of the well-known French popular song.

Furthermore, pink will be the only color of the ‘A522’ that will compete in the first two races of the year, Bahrain (March 20) and Saudi Arabia (March 27). AFP
