2022 may see a team surge ahead but Fernando Alonso reckons "after two or three years" there will be multiple outfits fighting at the front.
Fernando Alonso is impressed with Esteban Ocon, saying that while he is giving his maximum it is "not enough" to beat his team-mate.
Toto Wolff says it is up to Esteban Ocon and Alpine to decide if they want to continue together next season - only then would Mercedes enter the conversation.
Daniil Kvyat says he is weighing up offers for next season but ideally wants to be back racing in Formula 1.
Cyril Abiteboul has found a new job as an advisor to Mecachrome, a group that assembles Alpine's F1 engine.
Not where they want to be, Alpine are going to need "more than a few upgrades" to get involved in this year's midfield battle.
Alpine bosses have said providing partner teams with engines is "not a good deal" for Renault as it could prove "dangerously expensive" in the long run.
