The Renault name will leave Formula 1 in 2021 as the team rebrands to Alpine.

As part of a marketing exercise, Renault will become Alpine next year, bringing to an end the latest chapter in the manufacturer's on-off relationship with F1.

Renault returned to the sport as a factory outfit, most recently, in 2016 having previously walked away a the end of the 2011 season.
