F1 team shows off engine ahead of new season

Alpine have given fans a sneak peek of their new engine ahead of the 2024 season, releasing a video showing them firing it up for the first time.

The Enstone-based outfit are coming off the back of a season in which power problems hampered their progress, as they tried to become a team capable of challenging for regular podiums.

In the end, Alpine could only manage two podiums in 2023, one for each of their drivers Pierre Gasly and Esteban Ocon. This led to a tumultuous year in which a number of key personnel left the team.

Having secured the financial backing of a number of sporting superstars, Alpine are desperate to try and make an impact on the top five in the constructors' championship in 2024.
