Highlights

‣ Alpine showcased their car for the 2024 season and announced that Bruno Famin will continue as the team boss.
‣ Otmar Szafnauer, former team boss at Alpine, left the team after the 2023 Belgian Grand Prix.
‣ Bruno Famin, who was appointed interim team boss after Szafnauer’s departure, has a background as technical director at Peugeot Sport and Chief Technical Development Officer at Alpine F1 team.


On Wednesday, something exciting happened. Alpine threw the covers off their car for the 2024 season. It was a sight to behold, truly.

But wait, there’s more. They dropped another bombshell. Bruno Famin? He’s sticking around as the team boss. Yep, the French team’s got him locked in.

Now, let’s rewind a bit. Remember Otmar Szafnauer? He used to be with Aston Martin. But then, he switched lanes to Alpine. However, his stay wasn’t a marathon. More like a sprint, really. He bid adieu post the 2023 Belgian Grand Prix.

‘New’ team boss at Alpine

So, what happened next? Bruno Famin stepped up. He was like, “I got this,” taking over as interim team boss. And guess what? That “interim” tag? It’s gone. Famin’s the man for the upcoming season.

Before all this F1 buzz, Famin was deep into Peugeot Sport. From 2012 to 2019, he was the technical director. Then, in 2019, he took a leap to the FIA. Fast forward to February 2022, he joined the Alpine F1 team as Chief Technical Development Officer. By mid-2023, he was calling the shots as team boss. And it looks like he’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

So, there you have it. Alpine’s got their car ready and their leader set for 2024. It’s going to be an interesting season, for sure.
