The scrolls and the talent that characterize the Spanish Fernando Alonso are on trial this season, that of their return to the F1 after a two-year hiatus. At least that is clear from the sayings of Luca de MeoCEO Renault The Center said the two-time champion is key to making Alpine a superior team.
“Renault is Fernando's home, but I want him to use his experience to help us all grow. It has a different role than it did 15 years ago. He is the godfather of all. All I ask of you is to help us become a superior team, because it's about attitude and mindset. And he has it ", De Meo assured in an interview with Top Gear.
“Our goal is to give you a car that you can have fun in. And then you never know what happens in a Grand Prix ... Maybe we need to have a little luck, but we will do everything possible for him and Esteban (Ocon) ", explained the executive, who also confirmed that Alpine is in the F.1 "for eternity".
Although the French team, built on the foundations of Renault, is unlikely to be a protagonist this year, De Meo said the cost cap introduced in F.1 should help the team achieve its goals.
“The best teams were spending two or three times more than we could. The cap will help make the competition stronger and that's good for the show. Of course, we don't want to be losers, but we do want to be more and more competitive. This will be good and will provoke more battles. This is how it should be", culminated.
