Doohan and Schumacher soon to test with Alpine

Action for Alpine between two Grands Prix. Between Austria next weekend and Great Britain (July 5-7), the French manufacturer will be at Paul-Ricard for a test session with its reserve driver Jack Doohan. This is part of the TPC (testing of previous cars). Recently, the Australian had the opportunity to drive at Zandvoort at the wheel of the A522, the car used during the 2022 season. It is the same car which he will find in the Var.

On the other hand, Jack Doohan, whose name is mentioned among the candidates to succeed Esteban Ocon - or Pierre Gasly –, will not be alone at Castellet. Indeed, Alpine also announced the participation of Mick Schumacher « as part of his project Endurance » with the arrow A.

A communication undoubtedly made to avoid any supposition while the German was also mentioned as potential avenue for the 2025 campaign. An episode thatAlpine has already known in 2022 tests had been held in Hungary in September 2022, while he was looking for a successor to Fernando Alonso. Nyck De Vries, Jack Doohan, Colton Herta and Antonio Giovinazzi took part.

At the time, the French firm had to deny a possible “competition” to succeed the Spaniard, expected at Aston Martin the following year, assuring that it was simply a private test.

The influence of Il Magnifico Flavio, the lively cheater having already organized such confrontations in the past to pretend to choose or remove a driver from potential candidates for a seat!
