The Alpine team has a luxury problem when it comes to 2023. With the exception of Esteban O’Connor, who has a permanent contract, there is a choice between French stapler Fernando Alonso and Australia’s most talented Oscar Piastri. Otmar Szafnauer notes that he was not in a hurry to make a decision.
Beastry has been able to impress in Formula 1 classes over the past seasons. The Australian fought from Formula Renault Euro Cup to Formula 2 via Formula 3, and did so by winning the championship all those seasons. However, his impressive performance did not feature in the primary class. Because Alpine does not yet have a seat for its supporter.
Biastry vs Alonso
Thus, Piastre has been sidelined for a year. After all, being a Formula 2 champion is not allowed to drive another year in that class. From now on, it remains to be seen whether Piastri will get a place on the highest stage next year. His goal would be to do it with his own alpine group, but he would have to say goodbye to Alonso for that. However, the Spanish driver did not want to say goodbye to Formula 1 voluntarily after this season.
Still not thinking well
So the choice is up to Szafnauer and his staff. Really think so, but he hasn’t done it yet. “Truth be told, we didn’t think much of it. It’s relatively early. We’ve talked about the British GP in Silverstone,” he says. Motorsport.com⁇
The other option
As of now, Alpine does not seem to want to say goodbye to two-time world champion Alonso. Williams may have chances, Nicholas Latifi is under pressure. “I’m not thinking about it yet. I do not know what’s going on in Williams, although I have heard rumors. , I do not know exactly what’s going on in Williams, “said Soffner. So continue.
