Williams is reportedly interested in Oscar Piastri, but Saward says Nyck de Vries is still on the team’s radar.
Everything in the paddock, according to Saward, points to Fernando Alonso signing a new two-year deal with Alpine in the near future. After that, the Spaniard would join the team until the end of 2024.
Due to the fact that Esteban Ocon’s contract continues until the end of 2024, Alpine junior Oscar Piastri will have to hunt for a place elsewhere. With wins in the Formula 2 and Formula 3 championships in his rookie season, the Australian is a huge future talent.
During the Imola Grand Prix, Sky analyst Ted Kravitz stated that Williams was interested in Piastri for 2023. The team, on the other hand, wants to create its own driver squad.
“In this regard, Piastri does not belong on the team, and Nyck de Vries would be a better choice. They enjoy the look of the strong-jawed Dutch imp down at Williams “, the F1 journalist writes.
Nyck de Vries is still being tipped for the Williams seat, according to Saward. Mercedes will soon exit the Formula E series, therefore the Formula E champion will have to look for something else in the future.
