Davide Brivio believes that the experience of talking with Fernando Alonso and Suzuki riders Joan Mir and Alex Rins does not differ much.

Davide Brivio has started a new chapter in his career this year by joining Alpine. Before that, the Italian has worked as team principal of MotoGP’s team Suzuki.

Current Alpine racing director spoke about his experience of cooperating with his riders Joan Mir and Alex Rins as well as his current Alpine driver Fernando Alonso.

“Talking with Mir or [Alex] Rins, and doing it with Fernando is not very different,” Brivio told Motorsport.com.

“The relationship that someone like me, who is not an engineer and does not focus on technical or set-up issues, can have with the drivers is very similar in all cases.”

“In my role, the relationship with the pilot is based on listening to him and trying to make sure that he is in the best possible predisposition to offer his best version.

“You have to see if he is happy or if not, what he is happy about and what he is not.”

“We are talking about an athlete, so from this point of view there are hardly any differences between whether he drives a motorcycle or a car.”
