Philippe Sinault, Team Principal, Alpine Endurance Team, is delighted with the driver announcements but is cautious on predicting race wins for the A424.

“We are writing the next lines of the history of Alpine in endurance,” said Sinault. “We must be humble but ambitious for our project. We experienced big changes and a huge step forward as a team. To reveal our Hypercar for the 2024 season alongside our drivers is a truly special moment.

“We will learn to use the technical package, rely on our drivers’ experience, be reliable and, of course, finish the races. I think it’s difficult to say if we will go for the win this year but we are hungry for good results and expecting to shine quickly with everything we have put in place.”

The 2024 FIA World Endurance Championship gets underway in Qatar for Round One on March 2nd.
