Son of Aussie motorsport legend Mick Doohan is a contender to get a Formula One drive with Alpine as he stuns with huge win in Belgium

Jack Doohan, the son of Aussie motorbike legend Mick, has moved a step closer to a Formula One seat following a stunning win in Formula 2 at the weekend. Doohan had previously finished top of the podium when he won the sprint races at the British Grand Prix and the Hungarian Grand Prix last month. The sprint races are 50km shorter than the feature races and the top 10 driversĀ have their positions reversed from Friday’s qualifying session. Like his compatriot Oscar Piastri – who won the Formula 3 and Formula 2 world titles in the past two seasons – Doohan is part of the Alpine Junior Academy. And according to Sky Germany, Alpine could look at promoting Doohan into Formula One – initially as reserve driver should Piastri leave the team or replace Alonso – as early as next season.
