Alpine F1 Team Targets Redemption at Imola After Slow Start

15/05/2024

Alpine F1 pauses significant upgrades to maximize current resources for the upcoming races at Imola.

Alpine F1 heads to Imola, the 7th race of the season, with just one point on the board, scored in Miami. Despite the French team’s disastrous start in Bahrain, this was well received by Esteban Ocon and the entire Enstone and Viry team.

For the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix and the following ones, however, the outlook does not appear to be improving as Bruno Famin, the director, confirms that it will take a few races before significant developments are seen on the A524.

In the meantime, we must optimize the current package on track and redouble our efforts in the factories.

“The first point of the season in Miami shows that we are making progress after a very difficult start to the campaign,” observes Famin.

“Over the last two races, we have seen a slight improvement in our competitiveness and our ability to fight for more promising positions on the track. While this is partly due to certain characteristics of the circuits, we have been able to unlock performance through our developments.”

“We will not bring any other significant upgrades in the next few events, but we continue to work tirelessly in our two factories to improve the car and extract more performance.”

Alpine F1 thus starts the European tour mid-pack, in a position that remains precarious.

“This week marks our first race of the season in Europe as well as a return to a conventional track. Imola is synonymous with Formula 1 and is truly a legendary circuit. It’s very fast, tight, challenging, and it’s fantastic to continue racing on such iconic layouts.”

“We are also returning to a classic format without a Sprint, so we aim for a productive Friday to properly prepare for the rest of the weekend, when it really counts.”

“Except for Canada, an intense period of European meetings opens up until the summer break. It is crucial that the team remains focused and continues to give their all in the factories to bring more performance to the car, which is naturally our goal.”
