Seems like his contract with alpine expired at 31 July and he was already talking to other teams
Alpine expected Alonso to resign and Piastri to Williams on loan
Piastri have no interest in Williams and it seems Mc laren are very interested . Alonso then left the day after Piastri contract expired and alpine assumed he’d just sign for them
A lot of rumours linking Ricciardo to a drive with Arrow McLaren SP in IndyCar next year so a slot alongside Lando might just be there for Piastri.
Webber and Riccardo are mates . Wonder are they orchestrating this . Riccardo back to alpine
That’s true as well.
I bet the lads filming this season of Drive to Survive are rubbing their hands with all of this.
This is great fun. There’s not a lousy decision that Alonso cannot make. All the karma from mclaren and crashgate coming back in spades to him.
The IndyCar boys chiming in as there is a similar tug of war going on between Chip Ganassi & Arrow McLaren SP over where reigning champ Alex Palou will drive next year.
Zak brown must be linked to 6 drivers now
Looks bad for Riccardo … basically being replaced in public is tough going
O’Ward/Rosenqvist (current IndyCar drivers)
Alex Rossi (IndyCar 2023)
Colton Herta - drives for Andretti but is testing for McLaren
and now possibly Piastri…
Piastri to Mc laren it is
Mick to Alpine maybe although Mick is a Ferrari academy driver so they may not allow it
Riccardo swop it looks like
It’s not called silly season for nothing.
