Previous: 2011 Next: 2013

The 2012 Formula Renault 2.0 Alps Series is the second year of the Formula Renault 2.0 Alps series, and the eleventh season of the former Swiss Formula Renault Championship. The championship began on 24 March at Monza and will finish on 21 October at Barcelona after fourteen races held at seven meetings.

The second-year drivers shined in the opening weekend at Monza. The first pole position of the season was claimed by Tech 1's Paul-Loup Chatin, but in the first race he was passed by Red Bull-backed Koiranen's Daniil Kvyat and 2011 Junior champion Melville McKee.[1] Kvyat, who set the second fastest time in qualifying, dominated in both races and left Monza with 53 of 54 possible points.[2]
