Alpine took to the track with its A521 for the first time on Wednesday as Esteban Ocon completed one of the team's two permitted filming days.
Alpine has officially joined the Formula 1 grid for the first time in the manufacturer's history after the team completed a rebranding exercise during the off-season, whileit launched its new car on Tuesday.
Ocon took to the Northamptonshire track on a dry day and completed 16 laps of the 5.891km circuit.
Following his outing, the Frenchman said: "It was really good fun. First of all, it was nice to get in the car again at a track like Silverstone as that’s always something special.
"The car felt nice to drive for the first time and we managed to get through our programme as planned.
"There was a bit of a delay this morning with the fog, but once that cleared, the track was dry and that made the running very enjoyable.
"I wish I could drive for more than 100km, but that’s the limit, and I leave here with a smile on my face.
"We want to take that into Bahrain next week when conditions will be more representative with the race tyres and some heat.
"All in all, it was a very interesting day and I can’t wait to discover more about the car. I have to say, I love the new colours. It’s the best-looking car on the grid!”
