Renault has confirmed that its Formula 1 team will be rebranded under the Alpine name for the 2021 season.
Following the appointment of new Renault Group CEO Luca de Meo earlier this year, the French marque has undergone a review of its various brands, including its Alpine arm.
Renault officially announced on Sunday ahead of the Italian Grand Prix that its F1 operation would be known as Alpine from the 2021.
The team will race in blue, representing the colours of France and running with the national tricolore.
Two-time F1 world champion Fernando Alonso will return to the Enstone-based team for 2021, where he won both of his titles in 2005 and 2006. Alonso will partner incumbent driver Esteban Ocon.
Alpine has a tradition in rallying and sportscars, and has most recently been present in the FIA World Endurance Championship in the LMP2 class, revising chassis from Oreca for its Signatech Alpine.
De Meo said in a press conference on Sunday that Renault wanted to put Alpine at the middle of the motorsport business.
"It's a big change because Renault has been around for 43 years," said de Meo.
"It will stay on the car but as an engine provider, so it will be visible.
"We will use F1 as a platform to market a brand that we want to develop in the house.
"Even if Renault is a glorious brand, the fit of Alpine in the F1 world will be even better."
The rebrand follows an announcement earlier this week that F1 team principal Cyril Abiteboul would be heading up the Alpine business, which he called a "mission" that would be completed in tandem with his F1 role.
It opened the door for a possible rebrand of the Renault F1 operation for 2021, but Abiteboul said that was up to de Meo to decide.
"This change comes at a key moment in the trajectory of the team and the sport," said Abiteboul.
"Alpine brings a new meaning, new values and colours to the paddock with the spirit of competition from other worlds and French creative agility. These will be assets in the preparation of 2022 deadlines.
"The new regulatory and financial framework will establish the conditions for a fairer motor sport in its redistribution of revenues; simpler and progressive in its governance.
"The implementation of the 'budget cap' will put an end to the expense race and will allow the signatory teams to be measured for their sporting value.
"Alpine has its place in Formula 1 and can challenge for victory."
