Pierre Gasly will join Alpine in 2023

French driver Pierre Gasly, who has been part of the RedBull family for nine years, is leaving the group and joining Alpine “for several years” from 2023.

The rumor circulated for a while in the paddocks. It is now official. French driver Pierre Gasly is leaving the RedBull family to join Alpine from the 2023 season.

« I am delighted to join the Alpine family and start a new chapter in my Formula 1 career. Driving for a French team is something very special. I know Alpine’s strengths, having raced against their cars in years past, and clearly their progress and ambitions are impressive. said Pierre Gasly in a press release.

By joining Alpine, he will find Esteban Ocon, another French pilot. It will be the first 100% French team in F1 since 1995 with Christophe Bouchut / Eric Bernard.

Child of RedBull

« I want to thank RedBull, because it’s the end of a common adventure of nine years. They believed in me very early and supported me until F1. It was thanks to their trust that I became the pilot I am today and what we have achieved with AlphaTauri in recent years will always be very special to me. clarified Gasly.

Indeed, the Austrian team spotted the Frenchman in 2012, before being confirmed as a RedBull Junior Team driver in 2014. He took part in his first F1 Grand Prix in September 2017 with Toro Rosso before winning his one and only Grand Prix in Italy in September 2020, in a superb race against Carlos Sainz.
