Pierre Gasly joins Esteban Ocon in all-French Alpine line-up; Nyck de Vries confirmed at Alpha Tauri

Gasly leaves Red Bull for the first time in his career after it agreed to release him from his contract. De Vries makes his full-time Formula 1 debut after years on its fringes. De Vries, the 2021 champion of the all-electric Formula E series and Mercedes reserve driver, emerged as a candidate for Red Bull’s sister team after their attempts to recruit IndyCar star Colton Herta failed. De Vries, 27, convinced Red Bull he was the right driver to replace Gasly with an impressive F1 debut for Williams as a stand-in for Alex Albon at the Italian Grand Prix last month. De Vries, the 2019 Formula 2 champion, stepped in at the last minute when the British-born Thai was hospitalised with appendicitis.
