Your right Jeri, the default is Alpine/Renault can be required by FIA to supply Andretti if no other supply is available to them.

Think this story is overblown, Alpine are simply stating that the pre-existing contract has expired nothing more.

For me the real story is Renault turning ratty on Andretti and possibly now re-aligning with all other 'not in our cushy backyard' teams.  ::)

This also means Andretti are free to explore other engine partners as well now, that's not flagged up in story.
So much poor reporting and assumptions that Andretti must jump more fences than necessary.  :crazy:

Andretti has a new problem: he's lost his engine supply guarantee. Can't enter without it.

My understanding was that the engine suppliers were required to be able to support 'up to 3 teams', specifically so a team wouldn't find itself without a supplier.

The rule is real, but waiting that long will compromise the 2026 design.

It's not an insurmountable obstacle, but Andretti would be wise to take its future into its own hands and pick a supplier of its own choice.
