Who will replace Fernando Alonso at Alpine for 2023? This is the question that the French team is asking and must answer to find the successor to the Asturian, who will race in Aston Martin from 2023 under a multi-year contract. The candidate who had the most options and who was best placed is Oscar Piastri, but according to AutoHebdo, France has signed an agreement with another team from the paddock. The young Australian is not the only one in the basins.
Oscar Piastri, ¿I go to Alpine or other teams?
His name was the first to come out as Alonso’s replacement. He is a member of the academy in Alpine in 2020 and 2021 when he drove in F3 then in F2 (champion of both categories), today the Australian is a reserve driver and is one of the greatest talents of the new generation. . He waits to have a place, until his time comes, to enter the great circus of F1. Downloading Aussie would be the most realistic, logical, and easy decision possible.
However, he had looked strong to join Williams, who will fit a Renault engine in 2023, should Alonso continue with the team. With the confirmed departure of the Spaniard, it is difficult to imagine that the French structure would let him escape to transfer him to a rival being entirely his and at home. Also, the McLaren option looked solid for the next run. Ricciardo is on the wire, Zak Brown wants changes. He surveyed his Indy drivers: Pato O’Ward, Colton Herta and Álex Palou. But Piastri entered the tender, his agent Mark Webber wants to place him in a competitive midfield team.
But according to AutoHebdo France, Oscar Piastri has already joined another team, which would set off alarms in Alpine that they would have to look outside.
Change of Australian Trading Cards? He still has a contract with McLaren for 2023 but from Woking they want new faces. It’s not been an easy season for him and now that he’s over 30, maybe it’s a new opportunity to return to another project that will bring back his lost smile. In addition, he knows the structure, he was already at Renault in 2019 and 2020. It could be a second chance for an unfinished project.
The sweetness of the hearth. There is a third way and that is to retrieve another one from the house. The Chinese driver is unlikely to return to Enstone, but anything can happen in F1, and it has already been proven. Alfa Romeo wants Guanyu Zhou to continue in its structure. Frédéric Vasseur, team leaderhas always been very happy with the year that the pilot is doing and they want me to renew.
The announcement of Alonso’s replacement will not take long, we will have to be attentive to the coming weeks.
