    Brivio officially out of Suzuki Ecstar.

    Budkowski should announce him soon, but needs to be promoted to president of Renault Sport/ Alpine. He is currently director of the F1 division, i think.

    How much bigger of an operation is Alpine F1 from Suzuki MotoGp?

    Massively bigger.

    Suzuki is one of the lowest-funded operations in MotoGP, even lower than privateer teams. They won the riders and the teams championship in 2020, and came third in constructors just two points behind Yamaha with half the number of bikes in the field. That they won can be largely attributed to the absence of Hondaís Marc Marquez, but they rose to the top in that power vacuum against stronger competition.

    And factor in the market size of MotoGP vs F1, as well as the market in motorcycles against cars in general.

    For a privateer team to lease a bike for one year might be Ä4MÖ thatís less than a Formula 1 teamís tyre budget.

    So it would be a massive change in responsibility and pressure.

    Exciting for him but scary.

    Renault do have a history of going for 'inexperienced' managers, Fred Vasseur basically came straight from F3 IIRC.

    Also, didn't Budkowski come from the FIA to Renault with insider information?, I remember a big fuzz being made about his hiring.

    I think Brivio will do fine. He was Valentino Rossi's team manager back in his heyday and I believe was one of the main people in convincing Rossi to switch from Honda to Yamaha in 2004. He has got a very impressive resume of achievements in MotoGP.

    It'll be the same job, just with a different number of wheels... and heaps more money.

    It hasn't been mentioned here yet, but I just found out that Lewis Hamilton is now Sir Lewis Hamilton.

    So there's that.
