Vasseur eyes solution to Pourchaire dilemma

Alfa Romeo is still looking for an opportunity to give highly-rated development driver Theo Pourchaire a run in the 2022 car. Formula 1 teams this year must run alternate drivers in Friday practice sessions at least twice in 2022, with even Lewis Hamilton sitting out a session in France to make way for Nyck de Vries. But Vasseur says it has been “difficult” to find the right moment for Pourchaire, but he is confident a “solution” will be found. “We will find a free practice session 1 because the regulations state that you must give a rookie driver a session,” he told France’s Auto Hebdo. “You also can’t imagine giving a free practice session to rookies in Singapore,” Vasseur added. “There aren’t many opportunities until the end, but we’ll find the solution, don’t worry.
