Permane's AlphaTauri F1 Move 2024

Alan Permane Joins AlphaTauri for New F1 Challenge

15/01/2024

Alan Permane, the former Sporting Director at Alpine, will continue his Formula 1 career with the significantly revamped AlphaTauri, as reported by Motorsport.com. The sister team of Red Bull Racing has yet to confirm the British national’s actual placement within the team, but sources indicate he will be assigned a role. The specific nature of Permane’s role at AlphaTauri remains to be seen.

Permane is a veteran in the world of Formula 1. Having spent 34 years active in Enstone, the former Alpine Sporting Director has experienced numerous name changes within the French racing team. Last year, Permane also fell victim to the major personnel changes at Alpine, which included the departure of team principal Otmar Szafnauer. Permane now appears to have found a new position at AlphaTauri, where he will work under the team’s new principal, Laurent Mekies.

The Italian racing team is also undergoing some changes. AlphaTauri is set to change its name and will collaborate more closely with Red Bull. The team will increase its operations from Milton Keynes, moving away from Faenza. Additionally, Franz Tost has stepped down as team principal after deciding to retire. The drivers, however, remain unchanged. Daniel Ricciardo and Yuki Tsunoda will continue to be at the wheel this season.

Horner Holds High Regard for Permane.

The respect for Permane in Milton Keynes is significant. Christian Horner has previously expressed his admiration for his compatriot. “He is one of the longest-serving engineers in the sport, and certainly someone with a wealth of knowledge. Although I have never worked with Alan Permane, I think there are times when respect must be paid to someone who has worked hard for 34 years and has been involved in world championships with Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso,” said Horner.
