Alpine has announced that it will part ways with Davide Brivio at the end of the year, three years after he joined the French manufacturer.

Brivio became Alpine's Racing Director in 2021 when the team rebranded following a handful of seasons under the Renault name.

The Italian took on a new challenge in F1 after enjoying a highly successful stint in motorcycle racing with Yamaha and Suzuki.

Brivio has most recently been working as Alpine's Director of Racing Expansion Projects which included overseeing the Alpine Academy.

“It has been a proud chapter in my motorsport career to be involved in Formula 1 with Alpine,” Brivio said.

“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 onto 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 which may (and I hope that they will) arise in the future.”

Alpine issue thanks to Brivio

Alpine endured a difficult campaign as it slipped to sixth in the Constructors' Championship, two positions down on its 2022 spot.

Its year was overshadowed by a series of managerial changes that saw Laurent Rossi ousted as CEO in July before Otmar Szafnauer and Alan Permane left their senior management roles a week later.

Brivio is now the latest departure, with Alpine confirming that its junior academy will continue to be operated under the guidance of Julian Rouse.

“Firstly, we would like to thank Davide for his hard work and commitment over the last three seasons,” said Alpine's Interim Team Principal Bruno Famin.

“His experience in motorsports has been extremely valuable, especially in the development and progression of the Alpine Academy.

“Davide’s wish is to leave Alpine to pursue other opportunities and we have accepted his desire by mutually agreeing to part ways. We extend our best wishes to him in his next chapter of an already impressive career in motorsports.”
