Theo Pourchaire stated that he understands the challenges Alfa Romeo are facing to arrange him an FP1 outing this year.

Alfa Romeo initially had plans to give Theo Pourchaire their second mandatory rookie driver session in France. However, they had to be scrapped after it was announced that Formula 2 would race at Le Castellet. Alfa Romeo team principal Frederic Vasseur later revealed that they had issues with finding an FP1 slot for the 18-year-old.

“To be honest, we didn’t talk about that with Fred. We try to talk only about F2, he told me to concentrate on F2,” Pourchaire commented on the matter.

“But I saw the interview, normally it was planned to drive in Le Castellet, but fortunately or unfortunately there is the F2 weekend now. It’s good to have my own race, but we will see in the future. 

“I can understand it’s difficult because it’s not easy, there are only two or three tracks where it’s possible maximum, but I know there is a Pirelli test, there are weather issues as well. 

“Zhou is a rookie and Bottas needs to drive around Singapore, he didn’t drive there, Suzuka. 

“I don’t think about that, to be honest, I prefer to think about F2 and I have something to win in F2 this year.”
