Method 1 – Alpina | Who will exchange Fernando Alonso?

In a couple of hours Alpine managed to make individuals overlook the strategic catastrophe of Ferrari throughout the Hungarian Grand Prix. A tour de pressure that delights us. However now it is time to (lastly) discover a driver for subsequent season.

After consuming an area wind in entrance of the entire world, the Alpine crew would not have a lot time to discover a pilot for subsequent yr. Ought to he name again an ex or give in to panic shopping for? On the FFL we thought in regards to the drivers who may have assured throughout the 2023 season.

Daniele Ricciardo

From a chronological standpoint, Renault’s newest ex is none aside from Daniel Ricciardo. Okay, even for the Australian it is an issue. Similar to Alpine with Aston Martin, Daniel had the unhealthy concept of ​​connecting on social media throughout his trip. Half a phrase, she understood that his place for subsequent yr is now not reserved for him. Hello Daniele, hello Oscar.

What if the 2 damaged hearts determine to unite once more? On this level we agree, it’s the logical continuation. And if we go to the top of this reasoning, we will additionally hope to see this reform of the duo. Simply imagining it makes us shiver.

Oscar Piastri

To think about. Oscar not solely turned down Alpine’s seat, he determined to complete them off in opposition to the entire world. And we will safely say that this try is a convincing success. However nothing has been signed or official on his facet for subsequent season. Scavengers par excellence, we won’t assist however think about an FFL remaining for the Melbourne native. The Snub Alpine will lastly be adopted by McLaren. And he returns, head down, across the Alps, accepting the SMIC restrict for driving. It might due to this fact be his greatest transfer in F1, even earlier than he has competed in any race.

Pierre Gasly

How can we not consider a Frenchman to affix a French crew? Moreover, this switch would enable him to search out his nice pal Esteban. In truth, we solely see optimistic features on this speculation. Do you continue to doubt the brotherly bond between Pierre and Esteban? You might be bloody gossip. You simply have to recollect the 2018 French GP for its return to France. Popcorn please!

Just one drawback stays: Helmut Marko. The Austrian has determined to lock Pierre within the Pink Bull fold till the top of his life. Gasly is extra more likely to discover his wheel at Pink Bull than to go to Alpine. Which means.

Theo Pourchaire

It isn’t simply Pierre Gasly who might help type a Franco-French double at Alpine subsequent season. Théo Pourchaire seems as a cocorico various alternative. Second within the F2 championship, nonetheless, it might be that his membership within the Alfa Romeo fold doesn’t enable him to make such a transfer. However hey, did not Alpine simply create a case regulation on these well-known “breasts” with Piastri’s departure?

Charles Leclerc

What if he was the one who lastly had the keys to this file? Confronted with Ferrari’s abracadabrantes methods, one would perceive if Charles started to tire of the Scuderia. With Alpine they might additionally converse two widespread languages: French and race methods that maintain water. From there to say that Leclerc would have extra possibilities of changing into world champion with Alpine than with Ferrari? There is just one step. We’re exaggerating, however that is why you are studying us.

Charles Leclerc tries to know the technique of his strategists.

Romain Grosjean

If his greatest years in F1 had been behind the wheel of a Haas, we should not overlook too shortly that Grosjean can be a former Renault. Lurking within the shadow of Fernando Alonso at that second, he may lastly take the sunshine on the Spaniard’s expense. Mark Webber, Oscar Piastri’s coach, could not play a extra unhealthy joke on Alpine. It was he himself who had referred to as Romain a “loopy first spherical”.

In the meantime, Romain intently follows this collection. Ought to we see an indication there?

Alain Prost

It was by pondering of Alain that we realized that the logic of calling again your ex generally had limits. At 67, possibly it is a little bit late to recollect. Recontacting Prost is like texting an ex who’s now married with three kids and is retiring in a yr. However one element makes us assume twice. Apart from the truth that Prost has some notions about driving, the planets may actually line up for subsequent season. Renault driver from 1981 to 1983, the crew will have a good time the fortieth anniversary of his departure subsequent yr. And what higher birthday current than providing him a steering wheel? We launch a broad internet, after all. However relaxation assured, Otmar is in the identical scenario as us.

Manuel Valls

After his failures as mayor of Barcelona and within the final legislative elections, Manu is desperately attempting to reinstate himself professionally. Actively searching for a job, he could not say no to F1. Additionally, Valls may type a French doublet with questionable Spanish accents with Esteban Ocon. Alpine, however, should overlook the proposal made in Alonso, that may be a season plus an choice. With Manu, it is a minimal of 5 years.

Igor Tudor

The brand new OM coach begins in a sensational method: just one victory in 5 friendlies, and a part of the locker rooms is already behind him. Sufficient for the followers to ask for his departure, whereas the bastard solely signed on July 4th. If the development is confirmed, it might be that the Croatian finds himself on the job market earlier than the Spa-Francorchamps Grand Prix.

Samy Naseri

Velocity ​​clearly would not scare him. And what’s extra, he’s French. Ship your greatest Otmar e-mail!

James Bond

This might undoubtedly be Alpine’s best revenge. After being screwed by Alonso from Aston Martin, the French crew may steal the jewel of its English counterpart: James Bond. Seeing Agent 007 driving a French automotive could be a criminal offense of lese majesty. And we would not thoughts that. Away from there.
