What really happens behind the scenes in F1?

Published: 15 Mar 2022

Formula One is back! And for 2022, there’s a whole new set of car design rules for the teams to chew over: regulations supposed to reduce the ‘dirty air’ made by all those wings and vanes. Less dirty air means cars can follow closely. Cars that can follow can overtake. And more overtaking = exciting races and a more unpredictable championship…

One of the teams hoping to chase down Red Bull and Mercedes is Alpine, the Renault-backed, British-based outfit sporting a new blue’n’pink livery on its fresh contender – and on the overalls of its returning driver line-up: double F1 world champion Fernando Alonso and Hungarian GP winner Esteban Ocon.
