Oscar Piastri to join Alpine as reserve driver

Australian Formula 1 hopeful Oscar Piastri will be the Alpine team’s reserve driver in 2022. The 20-year-old from Melbourne is one of the most highly rated drivers in the junior categories and is leading this year’s Formula 2 series with two rounds to go. “We’re proud and privileged to have him as our reserve driver next year.”. Piastri said: “I’ve proved myself in the junior formulas and feel I’m ready for F1.”. Piastri is targeting promotion to a race seat in 2023, when the contract of veteran Alpine driver Fernando Alonso expires. In addition, we look forward to having Oscar’s input and expertise in driving the team forwards next year.”.
