The fact is that the years go by and the engine is still not up to par. Stopping F1, it's not so serious for Viry there is the A424 engine in endurance which is not for the moment the engine that is good for that and we have to prepare the Hydrogen for the Le Mans at the end of the decade. Nobody is rolling on the ground because Aston Martins are driving Mercedes and soon Honda, so why not? Alpine ?!

It would be better to stop paying fees to make a fool of yourself in front of the whole world, to sell while it's still worth something. viry has never been able to negotiate the hybrid shift and has been dragging itself since 2014. why would they get there in 2026? and why alpine ? a brand without a product; with confidential distribution and especially known in France, no commercial interest, just a tarnished image internationally! Same as Le Mans! congratulations again! stubbornness when we are not at the level is at least in line with the rest of the country, I think there is going to be a big reset! provided that gasly can bounce back before sinking

What is the meaning of all this noise? Talk about the brand? First Flavio, then the “we’re here for the long haul” sketch. It's time to get to work and have goals.

The fact that ALPINE abandons F1, this will make room for ANDRETTI, without exceeding the number of 10 Teams, which is not what the 'rich' Teams want! ! !
