Alpine has announced that former Suzuki MotoGP team manager Davide Brivio will join its Formula 1 squad this year.

Marcin Budkowski, who was recently named executive director in place of the outgoing Jerome Stoll, is poised to take over from Cyril Abiteboul as F1 team principal for the upcoming 2021 season, with the Frenchman leaving Groupe Renault altogether.

The switch was confirmed on Sunday by the French manufacturer, with Brivio appointed racing director, where he will report directly to new Alpine CEO Laurent Rossi.

"His specific role and responsibilities will be announced in the coming weeks". The Italian, 52, left the team last week.

Brivio's move to Alpine has been engineered by Renault CEO Luca de Meo, who is pushing hard to reinvigorate the French auto manufacturer's many sub-brands.

Speaking about his decision to move to F1 earlier this month, Brivio said that it had not been an easy call to make.

"It has been a hard decision".

"And it's hard to say goodbye also to all the people who have arrived over the years to create this great team".

Upon the announcement of his departure from Suzuki at the beginning of January, Brivio ending a 20-year career in the MotoGP paddock and an eight-year relationship with the Japanese manufacturer, the Italian spoke of his motivation for a new challenge. Brivio brings a wealth of experience from MotoGP, where he won several world championships with Suzuki.

Two-time F1 world champion Fernando Alonso is returning to the grid to join Alpine, alongside Esteban Ocon, and the team have already offered a glimpse of their livery for 2021.
