Pourchaire still in running for F1 future says Vasseur

Theo Pourchaire will continue his journey towards Formula 1 in 2022, Alfa Romeo team boss Frederic Vasseur has revealed. After the Swiss-based team confirmed that Guanyu Zhou will be replacing Antonio Giovinazzi next year, Vasseur’s young protege and fellow Frenchman Pourchaire admitted he was “obviously disappointed”. Vasseur, though, clearly has bigger plans for Pourchaire in the future. “He’s staying in F2,” the Sauber-run team’s boss said of Pourchaire, who is currently fifth overall, when asked about 2022. He won this season in Monaco, but the F1 car is so complex and we have just six test days before the season. However, Vasseur revealed that Pourchaire will “for sure” get some outings in Alfa Romeo’s 2022 car next year on the Friday mornings of grands prix.
