De Vries confirms: “I’ve spoken to Williams, AlphaTauri and Alpine” – F1 Piloti – Formula 1

Among the most surprising aspects that occurred during the Italian Grand Prix, the final round of the world championship before returning to the track in Singapore at the beginning of October, which sparked the most positive feedback was the performance of Nick de Vries. The Dutch driver, who was initially promoted by Aston Martin at Monza for PL1 only, changed the steering wheel on Saturday to replace the unavailable Alex Albon at Williams. Despite the emergency, De Vries performed well in both qualifying and in the race, even closing at Ninth place in the rankingthus in the point area.

Definitely a self-attracting performance Williamsone of the teams that has not yet confirmed their lineup for 2023. As things stand, the Formula E title winner could be the top candidate to replace Nicholas Latifi, if the latter does not win the Grove team’s confidence, but not only: Colton Hertha’s recent departure from orbit AlphaTauri The doors of the house in Faenza opened for the Dutch, recently seen in an interview with the Red Bull manager Helmut Marko. In this regard, De Vries did not deny chatting with the Austrian manager in an interview autohebdo.frbut ironically, the topic of conversation was “cutlets”.

A joke, however, that makes us imagine the increased chances of seeing De Vries in the AlphaTauri, which will happen on one condition: Pierre Gasly in Alps in 2023. If this hypothesis does not materialize, the French team can still focus directly on the third driver for Mercedes, one of the many drivers that the Enstone team have assumed as a replacement for Fernando Alonso. So where will Nick de Vries go? Dutch TV show host HumbertoMeanwhile, the 27-year-old admitted to the fact, the fact that he had been in contact with the three indicated teams, without going into details of what was allegedly, making Williams a minor exception.

“I don’t think I have a choice, because things are still largely out of my control – announced – I’ve been in talks with Williams for a long time and debuted there, so that might be the case logical move. I’ve been talking to the Alps since JulyI will also be doing a test in Budapest next week. As the media already noticed, I was last week In Austria to meet Dr. Marco We talk to him about the future. These are the facts for now. Wherever I can get a place I will be very happy, but now we have to see how the situation develops in the next few days or weeks.”
