The conclusion of a three-year collaboration with Davide Brivio marks the end of his tenure with the team. Brivio initially joined as racing director ahead of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship season and later took on the role of director of racing expansion projects, which included the successful management of the Alpine Academy, the team’s young driver program.
Brivio said, “It has been a proud chapter in my motorsport career to be involved in Formula 1 with Alpine. I would like to thank Alpine for the opportunity to experience Formula 1, which was my desire, and also for the chance to pass on some of my experience in motorsport to its young drivers in the Alpine Academy.
“I wish the team and the academy the best in the future and I’m sure we will see many young drivers go on to achieve fantastic things in their careers. To play a small part in some of that success will certainly be something I will cherish. I am grateful to Alpine for accommodating my wish to pursue other opportunities that may (and I hope that they will) arise in the future.”
The team expressed gratitude for Brivio’s contributions during his time at Alpine, stating that under his guidance the academy nurtured young talents across various motorsport disciplines, providing them with Formula 1 opportunities in recent seasons. Julian Rouse will continue overseeing the Alpine Academy program, which is entering its ninth year in 2024 and currently involves nine drivers from eight countries across four series.
Bruno Famin, VP of motorsports at Alpine Racing, said, “We would like to thank Davide for his hard work and commitment over the last three seasons. His experience in motorsports has been extremely valuable, especially in the development and progression of the Alpine Academy. We extend our best wishes to him in his next chapter of an already impressive career in motorsports.”
