Davide Brivio admits that Alpine is delighted with the performance of the team’s junior drivers in 2021.
Alpine has a couple of young prospects that are very close to reaching Formula 1 – Guanyu Zhou, Oscar Piastri, and Christian Lundgaard and they perform on a high level. The Alpine racing director Brivio confirms that they are happy with the progress of the junior drivers.
“On the whole, we’re quite happy with the season so far, even if sometimes the results do not reflect the potential,” he commented.
“Firstly, in Formula 2, we are in a good situation, where we have three really great talents. Oscar and Zhou are 1-2 in the Drivers’ Championship while Christian has been very unfortunate on a number of occasions this season and hasn’t quite had the opportunity to truly show his promise.
“The three drivers are talents that I’m sure other young driver programs would like to have; such is the high level of Formula 2 this year.
“Oscar has been impressive as a rookie after winning Formula 3 last season and we’re excited to see how he can continue to progress. Zhou has a lot of experience in the category and will be in the mix by the end of the year.”
