While Schumacher will maintain his Mercedes commitments in 2024 alongside his new Alpine role, his presence in the Formula 1 paddock is expected to decrease compared to 2023.

The 24-year-old racer is set to reengage in full-time competition for the first time since his 2022 season with Haas. His tenure with Haas was marked by several costly errors and fluctuating performances during his initial two years in Formula 1.

Alpine has enthusiastically integrated Schumacher into their fold, affectionately referring to him as part of the family in a recent post on their official X (previously known as Twitter) account.

The team highlighted the burgeoning camaraderie between Esteban Ocon and Schumacher, who will now share their association with Alpine, signalling a new era of teamwork and collaboration within the squad.
