Otmar Szafnauer, the head of the Alpine F1 Team, is sure that reserve driver Oscar Piastri will make his F1 debut in 2023, but hasn’t said which team it is …
F2 champion Oscar Piastri joined the Alpine F1 team as a reserve driver this year, but Esteban Ocon has signed a contract until 2024 and Fernando Alonso is expected to remain on the team next season. There seems to be no room for debut.
Oscar Piastri is rumored to make his debut at Williams F1 on behalf of Nicholas Latifi, who is currently struggling.
But when asked if Oscar Piastri would make his F1 debut in 2023, Otmar Szafnauer replied “yes” rebelliously.
“We don’t talk about the details of the contract with the driver. That’s what we never do.”
“Therefore, no matter how many I want to tell, I don’t think I can tell, but when I say so, it’s planned.”
“We have a contract with Oscar. He has several options so you don’t have to hurry. So we take the time to look around at the right time for the Silly season and so on. Make a type of decision ”
