Formula 1: Huge excitement about the pilot!
What happened? On Monday (1 August) Fernando Alonso announced that he is leaving Alpine for the coming season and will join Aston Martin. The French team apparently filled that gap just a day later with Oscar Piastri. But the young Alpine driver denied the agreement on Twitter.
“Alpine F1 issued a press release this evening, without my consent, that I will be driving for the team next year. That’s wrong. I have no contract with Alpine for 2023 and will not be driving for them,” wrote the young Australian.
How this misunderstanding came about remains a mystery. On the other hand, it should be pretty clear: Alpine now has a huge problem – the damage to its image can hardly be repaired.
