Alpine has announced a restructure of its senior management in its motorsport division, with Formula 1 engine chief Bruno Famin becoming Vice President of Alpine Motorsports.
Famin will now manage all of their motorsport activities across sports cars, rally-raid, Alpine Academy, and F1, reporting directly to CEO Laurent Rossi.
The move means that Alpine F1 Team Principal, Otmar Szafnauer, will report directly to Famin.
He will remain as the head of its F1 and motorsport engine division at Viry-Chatillon, having taken up the role of managing director in 2022.

Alpine utilise Famin's motorsport experience
Alpine is leveraging Famin's extensive experience across motorsport, as it looks to return to title-challenging form in F1 and other categories.
The team has yet to deliver on its promises to achieve podiums more regularly in F1 this season, but with more focus on their motorsport operations it could led to better results on track.
A statement read: "With this appointment, Bruno Famin will be in position to leverage his extensive experience in motorsports, built on his unique track record of victories, including several titles in Le Mans and Dakar.
"He will also contribute his acknowledged engineering know-how, which helped re-establish Alpine’s F1 PU as a credible reference in the paddock, as well as his extensive experience in Motorsports regulations, having long served as a well-respected FIA executive."
