Alpine F1 released on Thursday renderings of a 2020 F1 challenger draped in its winter colours as well as the chosen nomenclature of its 2021 car.

The rebranded Renault F1 outfit's new machine that will be raced by Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon this year will be known as the A521.

The car showcased in the images and studio pictures features a black base that pays tribute to the original A500 F1 prototype from 1975.

Alpine will pull the covers off its 2021 car at an event that will take place next month.

"The livery presented today is the first evocation of the Alpine F1 team's new identity," said Alpine design director Antony Villain.

"Some of the structural graphic elements will remain on the racing livery while others will change. The 'oversized' Alpine emblem in a tricolour graphics system is the first clear-cut symbol of the brand's identity in motorsport.

"The blue, white and red refer to the colours of the French and British flags, which is very important to us. Numerous variations on all the motorsport assets are still to come."
