Regardless of any past controversy, he's clearly a competent person with lots of experience and success in F1 whose advice could be very useful. Good for Alpine!

Considering that Pat Symonds was also part of Singapore 2008 (he also got banned like Briatore, although not for life, before a court overturned it as well) and later became FIAs Chief Technical Officer from 2017-2024, this really isn't that controversial.

Flavio has already been in involved in current F1 for few years now. He's involved in organizing the Baku GP apparently and since 2022 has been running the paddock club for F1.

Budget cap is something he was calling for a long time, these conditions in F1 of less focus on technical play to his strengths.

Renault and Geely transfered all the ICE technology IP and manufacturing capacity to a new joint venture company called Horse. Both groups own 50% each of the JV

All engines in Renault an Geely group cars will now be made by Horse

Aramco has an option to buy 20% of this company

Thanks for the correction. But whether it's for the FIA or Formula One Management, the point still stands, and he had an influental role in the sport in that time period (amongst other things, he was a big part of the creation of the current technical regulations).

They beat one of the McLarens. Briatore is one of those ppl who success just follows around..for no apparent reason

Good! In my opinion Carlos is a wise choice. And for Carsol, I dont think Williams or Audi are better option than Alpine.
