F1 podcast: Why are drivers fleeing Alpine?

Aug 8 2022

With Fernando Alonso and Oscar Piastri turning their backs on the Alpine Formula 1 team in quick succession, we ask why in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast.

Alpine is currently best-of-the-rest behind F1’s big three in the constructors’ championship and has big ambitions, but does its driver situation reflect a wider problem?

Mark Hughes and Claire Cottingham join Edd Straw to discuss Alpine’s problem and ask if Alonso might regret his move to Aston Martin.

There’s also a look at which drivers and teams need to do better in the second half of the season, and whether Mercedes can emerge as a serious threat to Red Bull and Ferrari after the August break.

And with F1 recently launching its ‘Drive it Out’ campaign, we also ask if the series has a problem with the behaviour of certain ‘fans’.
