Oscar Pastri to race alonside Ocon for 2023

The Alpine F1 Team announces today that the team’s 21-year-old reserve driver Oscar Piastri has been promoted to a full-time race seat for 2023 alongside Esteban Ocon – taking the seat vacated by Fernando Alonso, who is moving to the Aston Martin team. Piastri, who is from Melbourne, Australia joined the Alpine Academy following his title win in the Formula Renault Eurocup Championship in 2019. Piastri went on to win the 2020 FIA Formula 3 Championship before taking three drivers’ titles in a row by winning the FIA Formula 2 Championship in 2021. As our reserve driver he has been exposed to the team at the track, factory and testing where he has shown the maturity, promise and speed to ensure his promotion to our second seat alongside Esteban.
