“No power supply or no connection …” – Alpine plans to loan Academy drivers to other F1 teams this season

The Renault / Alpine team has a stock of talented young drivers who are expected to move to Formula 1 this decade. For this season they have returning legend Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon, guided by Mercedes.

Mercedes has three: Aston Martin, McLaren and Williams; Red Bull has a sister team AlphaTauri, and Ferrari has Alfa Romeo and Haas. Either way, Alpine Academy director Mia Sharizman is confident in “deals” with other teams to put her boys’ testing back in their F1 cars.

“This is something that we have identified, ways and means to finally get the drivers to our headquarters. Without a power supply or without any connection, there can still be collaboration between other teams. not reveal too much.

“But that said, we focus on what we have, we focus on the two racing seats we have, the academy we have and the tools we have. Obviously getting into our team is the priority. But we believe there is still room for collaboration with other teams, regardless of the power supply to the PSU.

The Alpine Academy is igniting the powder in F1, with three credible drivers for this season. Guanyu Zhou and Christian Lundgaard are title contenders this season, while Oscar Piastri is the defending F3 champion. All three would seek impressive performances this season and give Ocon a run for his money for the elusive seat alongside Alonso.

“The three are three different years, before the championship: you have Zhou in his third year, Christian in his second year, and obviously Oscar is a rookie.”
