F1 News: Alpine team sacks Rob White

Alpine have sacked veteran operations director Rob White as the struggling French team continues to clean house of anyone who isn’t French.

The 58-year-old had been at Alpine’s parent company Renault in Formula 1 for 20 years, and in the role of director of operations at their Enstone factory since 2016.

He was sacked by team principal Bruno Famin, with the factory told of the decision on Wednesday.

White joined Renault in 2004 as deputy managing director of engines at their F1 facility at Viry-Chatillon in Paris. He had previously been head of F1 engine operations at UK motorsport engine-builder Cosworth.
