Alpine CEO Laurent Rossi thinks that both Fernando Alonso and Oscar Piastri will compete in Formula 1 next year.

Alonso’s current contract with Alpine is expiring this year and the Spaniard wants to keep going. At the same time, Alpine have their reserve driver Oscar Piastri and they have the desire to give him an F1 seat.

“Well Fernando, his contract is over this year, so obviously we’re discussing with him,” Rossi commented on the matter.

“We’re making and building scenarios for him and Oscar, as I’m sure you would ask me. The idea is that the two of them are worthy drivers, and we would love them to drive next year.”

When asked whether both drivers would be in F1 in 2023, Rossi said: “I think so.”

However, Rossi stated that Alpine would agree to let Piastri to another team only on a loan agreement.

“I’d be open to loan Oscar out to a team as long as I get him back.

“We’ve invested heavily in Oscar, we believe in him, that is why he is our reserve driver. He’s a very promising talent, we would love to fulfil this talent in the team.

“A loan like many other drivers starting in a team to learn the tricks, and then coming back to us would be a good scenario.”
