Tom Coronel, a Dutch driver in touring car competitions and commentator on Formula 1 in his country, assures that there is something more than a strong rumor about the recent signing of Australian Alpine F1 reserve driver Oscar Piastri as a Williams driver replacing Nicholas Latifi from 2023.

From British and also French media, it has been speculating on the hilarious possibility that the Australian, tester of the Gallic team, was the replacement for Fernando Alonso from next year, something that has never been too likely. The progress options of the Enstone team and its projection today depend on Spanish, and in Paris they are no strangers to that if any camera focuses on them in the race, It’s because of the ’14’ contest.

It was signed two weeks ago?

According to Colonel, “Of course we’re going to see Alpine’s reserve pilot, Oscar Piastri, piloting there. It seems that this has already been signed in Monaco. I don’t know when they’re going to release it. It’s a very strong rumour.” revealed on ‘Racing News 365’.

“If you want to mature someone in Formula 1, like Piastri, so Alpine has set aside a part of the budget for this: a budget to have him and get him used to Formula 1″, Coronel added, noting that the young driver would go on loan, as a substitute for Latifi, with the option of being picked up in the future.

“You don’t lend a driver like Piastri. You don’t put him at Williams for any reason. That means Alpine would like to keep their lineup unchanged,” says the Dutchman.

If confirmed, it will be “solution that can satisfy our three pilots, Esteban, Oscar and Fernando, although it will not be easy”, of which I spoke Luca de Meo, president of Renault, On the Barcelona grid, All was asked by Albert Fbrega on DAZN F1, and the president’s answer caused quite a stir.

We will have to wait for confirmation, but someone who has been competing for so many years and on the circuits usually has known in almost all teams and I wouldn’t say something like that without a reliable basis.
