The new deal will see the team renamed as BWT Alpine F1 Team.

The water company was previously a sponsor of Aston Martin (Racing Point/Force India before that) with its pink colour dominating the team’s car liveries in recent years.

Alpine will launch its new car on February 21, just two days before pre-season testing in Barcelona.

Two-time F1 champion Fernando Alonso will remain alongside Esteban Ocon for 2022.

The French outfit finished fifth in the championship, winning the Hungarian Grand Prix with Ocon.

“We are excited to announce that BWT will be the title partner for Alpine F1 Team for the next years, said Cédric Journel, Alpine Sales and Marketing Vice President.

“Both Alpine’s and BWT’s sustainability agendas are fully aligned on eliminating single use plastics and we are pleased to join forces to convince many people around the globe, our employees, partners, customers and fans to reduce plastic waste. 

“In parallel we will use the huge global platform F1 provides to support BWT in their fight against the unfair distribution of clean, safe and healthy drinking water.”

It’s been a busy off-season with Marcin Budkowski and Alain Prost leaving the team.
