Otmar Szafnauer is currently no longer a team boss in Formula 1. Along with Alan Permane, the former Alpine team boss has stepped down from his position within the French formation. It was previously announced that Alpine CEO Laurent Rossi has abandoned ship. Bruno Famin is the temporary team boss now.

"As far as the Team Principal function is concerned, for the time being I’m going to do it, I will think about it, and I will decide. But there is no hurry, we can manage it," Famin said

"Job number one is to talk to the staff, to all the people on the staff, to share what is going on, to explain what is going on, and to make sure that everybody’s onboard,” he said. “We need all the energies, we need everybody onboard," Famin continued.

On the track, Alpine drivers Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly have been quite volatile. The two French ruffians seem to be equals so far this Formula 1 season. Alpine is sixth in the World Constructors' Championship with 57 points.
