Pierre Gasly Re-Signs with Alpine, Impacts Carlos Sainz’s Future

Alpine Announces Renewable Deal with Pierre Gasly

The Renault Formula One team has announced a long-term contract extension with French pilot Pierre Gasly, with sources confirming that the deal will take the 32-year-old driver through to the 2025 season and beyond.Gasly, who joined Alpine’s forerunner, Renault, in 2017, has consistently demonstrated a level of proficiency on the track, accumulating a staggering 140 races under his belt to date.

According to internal sources, Gasly’s contract had been chosen by Alpine’s leaders for renewal, largely due to concerns regarding Esteban Ocon’s commitment to the team, which took a hit after a series of controversy-strewn events.

An Alternative Option: Carlos Sainz and Flavio Briatore

There are whispers hinting at the possibility of Carlos Sainz joining Alpine, concurrent with Flavio Briatore being named executive advisor. Briatore has been touted as considering other options, including a potential managerial role at Williams, Sauber, and perhaps even a seat at the negotiation table within Red Bull Racing, should Dutch ace Max Verstappen’s prospects of a downward spiral due to subpar performance continue unchecked. Mercedes has made a bid, which is allegedly supported by Company President Ola Kallenius, with no firm decision declared thus far.

Williams Develops Second Thoughts

Inside information suggests that an announcement regarding Gasly’s new partnership for next year may be delayed temporarily as Williams weighs up the consequences of joining forces with Alpine.

The team manager, Pierre Famin, expressed his satisfaction with Gasly’s renewal, highlighting his considerable experience in F1 and stating that Alpine hopes to cement a strong partnership with him moving forward:
