Alpine has completed a shakedown of its 2023 car, the A523, ahead of its official unveiling later this week.
Esteban Ocon and new team-mate Pierre Gasly both sampled the new challenger at Silverstone on Monday.
Per the regulations limiting teams to 100km of running during a shakedown Ocon completed nine laps of the circuit before Gasly added eight to the car’s tally.
The A523 is due to be presented during an event at London’s Printworks on Thursday evening.
“It’s been another milestone ticked for the A523 today with our shakedown at Silverstone and I’m pleased the day ran so smoothly,” said Alpine Technical Director Matt Harmon.
“Esteban drove first in the morning to check all the systems were working properly as well as completing the usual install programme for the car.
“Pierre was then in the car in the afternoon for the first time in the A523 and completed eight stable laps to get an initial feel in his new surroundings.
“These days are of course limited and not representative, but we’ve certainly had a great day and we now look forward to testing in Bahrain where we expect to continue our learning of the 2023 car.”
Williams was also in action at Silverstone on Monday as it put the first miles on its FW45.
