F1 2022: Alpine begins casting to replace Fernando Alonso

youn casting with three pilots to finally decide who will be the one who will occupy the position that leaves Fernando Alonso in Alpine for next year. This Tuesday the private event that the French team is organizing has already started to finally settle its second seat for 2023.

Nyck de Vries, Jack Doohan and Antonio Giovinazzi are the three drivers who will participate. The latter was precisely the first to take the wheel, according to ‘Motorsport Italia’. The tests take place on the Hungaroring circuit. In principle, the test is distributed in this way: tomorrow it will be the turn of De Vries and Thursday that of Jack Doohan, according to information from ‘Auto Bahn’.

But what about Pierre Gasly? The AlphaTauri rider became a pool favorite last week. However, do not be in the test. According to the aforementioned publication, he was selected to do a separate test, different from that of the three other companions who are already summoned to ride on the Alpine.

Everything remains to be decided in this hectic transfer market in Formula 1. But, if Gasly is the one who finally becomes Esteban Ocon’s partner, a new scenario will open up in the market. Because presumably the gap left in AlphaTauri could go to de Vries.

So these tests, more than a test, would also be so that the youngest can accumulate kilometers at the wheel of a Formula 1, a very common practice when it comes to forming new promises.

Everyone’s options

It seems that the alpine option is not a priority for any of the three. Not at least according to the rumors that arrive. De Vries admitted a few days ago that yes, he was in negotiations with the French, but also with Red Bull and Williams.

The latter option seemed like a logical step, considering he made his debut with them a few weeks ago in the race, and they don’t seem too happy with Latifi’s performance as Albon’s teammate. . However, the last conversations put him in the center of AlphaTauri replacing Gasly.

It is down Giovinazziwhich has more open doors: it also has options in Haas and Williams, and he has already said this season that he wants to reclaim a seat for next year.

And the last among these three, there is Jack Dohan. He hasn’t done badly this season and is part of the development program of Alpine and its flight academy. It could therefore be an option… although perhaps in the not too distant future, but not for 2023. He has already assured that it is “a motivation” for his name to appear in the chickens.
