Disaster struck at the second restart when Ocon and Gasly collided, leaving Team Principal Otmar Szafnauer to despair.
If their early racing competition caused stress, Alpine drivers Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly both claim they want a healthy working relationship as teammates.
The launch plans for their 2023 car have been announced by Alpine, the fourth Formula One team. On February 16th, the new A523 will be unveiled.
Esteban Ocon doesn't think Pierre Gasly, his new Formula 1 teammate, will need much assistance learning Alpine and thinks he will be a "excellent addition" in 2023.
After slipping to ninth place in the standings, Pierre Gasly believes 2022 fell "very far short" of AlphaTauri's ambitions going into the Formula 1 season.
A livery introduction for AlphaTauri's 2023 Formula 1 vehicle will take place in New York in February.
Pierre Gasly has stated that he is not the only driver on the verge of a race ban as a result of the Formula One penalty points system.
Summary: Alpine driver Pierre Gasly fears that "four or five" Formula 1 drivers may accrue suspensions if the current superlicense penalty points system is left in place.
Gasly has an intriguing future ahead of him, and he will be hoping that Alpine can build on their positive 2022 performance.
If a driver accumulates twelve penalty points, they will be banned from racing for one Grand Prix, forcing them to watch from the stands as they serve their punishment.
