It’s no secret that many strive for what Red Bull has; two teams on the starting grid and a driver pool. The Enstone team is therefore considering bringing its own sister team online.

As British journalist Joe Saward of FormulaPassion.it explained: “All of these problems could be overcome if Alpine had a customer team for its engines, but the options seem limited at the moment. I learned that Alpine is considering the idea of ​​helping set up a new team that would theoretically provide an entry fee of $ 200 million to create a similar scenario with the Alpha Tauri as with Red Bull. “

“That may seem crazy, but having a second team would mean having a good resource and something useful to help develop the new 2026 engines, possibly using brands like Renault, Nissan or Mitsubishi,” explained he. (Translated from Italian via Google)

How is the French team doing this season?

The Enstone-based roster had some good moments and some difficult moments during the 2021 season. Alpine’s best result so far this season was the Hungarian Grand Prix, where Esteban Ocon took his first win of the season.

They are in fifth place with 104 points and hope to have great results by the end of the season. After the French team put their trust in Ocon and two-time world champion Fernando Alonso next season, the French team hopes the duo can bring them success.
