Alpine team principal Otmar Szafnauer thinks that Oscar Piastri will get a Formula 1 seat in the 2023 season.

After an impressive career in feeder series, Piastri did not get an F1 seat and became the Alpine reserve driver in 2022. Reports emerged recently, stating that the Australian might replace Nicholas Latifi at Williams either during the 2022 season or in 2023.

When asked whether Piastri would compete in F1 next year, Szafnauer responded: “Yes.

“We’re contracted with Oscar, we have some options on him so there’s no real need to hurry that. We’ll take our time and at the right moment within the silly season we’ll have a look around and make those types of decisions.”
