The Alpine Formula 1 team has confirmed the appointment of ex-Suzuki chief Davide Brivio as its new Racing Director.
Brivio had been linked to the team in the wake of his surprise departure from the title-winning MotoGP squad earlier this month.
Brivio had fronted Suzuki’s MotoGP project since the manufacturer returned to the championship and last year the outfit won the Teams’ championship and Riders’ crown with Joan Mir.
Brivio’s specific role and responsibilities will be announced in the coming weeks.
Alpine outlined that Brivio will report to newly-appointed CEO Laurent Rossi.
Rossi was installed as Alpine’s CEO last week in the wake of Cyril Abiteboul’s shock departure from the Renault organisation.
Current Executive Director Marcin Budkowski is expected to take Abiteboul’s position as Team Principal.
Prior to joining Suzuki in 2014 Brivio fronted Yamaha’s MotoGP project and worked with current Renault CEO Luca de Meo, who was then in charge of Yamaha’s title sponsor Fiat.
Brivio was an influential figure in convincing Valentino Rossi to join Yamaha and then remained with the Italian in a more personal capacity when he joined Ducati.
Alpine revealed its winter-themed livery on Thursday as part of Groupe Renault’s strategic relaunch.
The Formula 1 team’s full unveiling is due to take place next month.
Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon will race for Alpine in Formula 1 this year.
