Marcin Budkowski, head of the Alpine team, commented on Alonso's continuity confirmed by the team for 2022 and downplayed it, admitting that "it was a two-year agreement with a clause that existed just in case, in case it didn't work, to end the relationship. " "It's great, sincerely there were no doubts on our part with Fernando, Laurent already explained the conditions. It is a symbolic, automatic renewal, but the symbols are also important. They show Fernando's commitment to the team and to the challenge of 2022, it is good to show it to the people of the team and also externally ".

Regarding the Asturian driver's performances in the 2021 season and thinking about the future, the French engineer of Polish origin assures: "When you see how he is driving in the last races, it is clear that he is an asset for the team and that he is preparing for the challenge of the new rules. Now it is we, as a team, who have to give him a better package, a car and an engine to fight for better positions such as the podium. "

Alonso is eleventh in the general classification with 38 points and five from his teammate, who closes the top-10. His best result is Hungary's fourth place. Alpine, for its part, defends fifth position in the constructors' championship with a slight margin over Alpha Tauri, the direct rival along with Aston Martin.
