The French manufacturer secured their first victory under the Alpine banner when Esteban Ocon won in Hungary last season, and they ended the campaign sixth in the constructors’ standings.
Ocon will partner double world champion Fernando Alonso for a second successive year, with F2 champion Oscar Piastri fulfilling reserve duties.
Esteban Ocon, Alpine Formula One Driver
“I’m very excited, of course, to not only see the A522 for the first time but to drive it for the first time this week. It’s always a privilege to drive a new Formula 1 car for the first time, as you know all the hard work that has gone on behind the scenes at both factories in Enstone and Viry from all of the many talented people working in the different departments there."“That feeling and responsibility is truly unique and very special. I feel prepared, I feel ready physically, so let’s hit the track and see what we’ve got in our hands this year.”
Esteban and the A522 is due out on track at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on February 23 as pre-season running gets under way.
