Oscar Piastri is at the eye of a Formula 1 driver market storm, rejecting Alpine’s announcement that he will be racing for the team in 2023 in the wake of Fernando Alonso’s departure.
In the latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast, Scott Mitchell and Edd Straw attempt to separate fact from fiction and explain how this situation arose and what happens now.
They also ask where Piastri will be racing next year and look at the possible ways an opening could be created at McLaren.
And with Alpine having to consider other options should it lose the battle for Piastri’s services, we look at the alternatives and ask if Daniel Ricciardo might be the best of the limited list of available drivers.
Finally, there’s a look at the announcement that Alex Albon will be remaining at Williams next year and discuss whether that’s good or bad for the ex-Red Bull Racing driver.
