Alpine F1 boss hits Aussie young gun Oscar Piastri with a stunning smackdown after he sensationally refused to drive for team: ‘It’s about integrity as a human being

FuriousĀ Alpine team boss Otmar Szafnauer will seek financial compensation from young Aussie driver Oscar Piastri after he walked out on the manufacturer. Now Alpine looms as the most likely destination for Ricciardo, to replace Piastri as back-up driver to Fernando Alonso. However Szafnauer is wild because of the time and money that Alpine invested into developing Piastri. ‘We have a contract with Piastri, which he signed in November, we have spoken to our lawyers and they have told us that this is a binding contract, so part of that contract allows us to put Oscar in one of our cars in 2023. ‘We have spent lots and lots of money on Piastri to prepare him for the future. ‘You did everything I asked you to do (from Alpine to Piastri) and now I promise you that if you do this, I will do this.
