The new Alpine challenger revealed

Alpine Challenger has officially been unveiled, offering a bold and exciting new design.

The 2023 Alpine Formula 1 car will be called the A523 and the launch date has been announced.

Alpine finished fourth in the championship. They pulled up to fourth place with their 2022 car, the A522. This year's members of the team are Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly behind the wheel. All this happened when Fernando Alonso left the team to join Aston Martin. This year's Alpine A523 was launched on February 16 in London. 

Pierre Jean-Jacques Gasly joined the team from Alpha Tauri. The French racing driver currently competes in F1 as a 2016 GP2 Series champion, a runner-up in the 2014 Formula Renault 3.5 Series, and the 2017 Super Formula Championship. He tested the A522 at Yas Marina Circuit after the 2022 season had concluded and at that time relayed, "Firstly, thanks to the entire team for making me feel so welcome over the last two days, and I’m feeling ready to begin this next chapter in my career. I’m looking forward to visiting everyone at Viry and Enstone, debriefing on this test, before working towards our objectives alongside Esteban for the 2023 season."

Laurent Rossi, the Chief Executive Officer of Automobiles Alpine and the Alpine F1 Team said their P4 in the standings in 2022 was a significant achievement. This is so we can continue to fight for the championship. "I mean, it's always better to finish P4 than P5, no doubt," he said. “At the beginning of the season, the goal was to put a brand-new structure in place, which we did. That structure was supposed to deliver innovations, upgrades throughout the entire season, to be more competitive, which we did, which culminated, ultimately, in a better position, which we are very close to reaching." 

He continued, "That's why it's so crucial, not just financially but also for momentum." We said we would try and progress every year to catch up as much as we can with the top teams. It's critical not to miss the first step. Hopefully, we're able to get there."
