Alpine has neither confirmed nor denied Briatore’s return, but has released a statement. It says: “As a team, we are in contact with numerous experts from the sport to improve our performance. We consider all possible inputs and rely on the advice of experts who have already been successful. However, we will not speak about individuals.”

Flavio Briatore played a pivotal role in shaping the success of Benetton and Renault during the 1990s and early 2000s. Together with Michael Schumacher, he transformed Benetton into a world championship team, winning titles in 1994 and 1995. Later, with Fernando Alonso as the lead driver, Briatore repeated the feat with the Renault factory team in 2005 and 2006.
