It already shines. It already looks like one of the most beautiful cars of the entire Formula 1 2021 grid, without question, with the permission of the few cars that are yet to be presented. Aesthetically, the new Alpine A521, the car that marks the return of Fernando Alonso to Formula 1, is imposing. It does not disappoint. What’s more, at first glance, it is exciting. As expected, the decoration of the car recreates the French flag with its colors (blue, white and red), but also recalls those of the British flag, to unite the two factories in a single livery, the French Viry-Châtillon ( engine) and the ensemble’s headquarters in Enstone.
