Gasly confirmed at Alpine for 2025 on multi-year extension

Pierre Gasly will remain with the Alpine Formula 1 team into 2025 and beyond after signing a multi-year contract extension with the French constructor.

Alpine has had a poor 2024 so far and with both drivers out of contract at the end of the season, there was a chance it would be looking for a completely new lineup. While Esteban Ocon will leave at the end of the year, the 28-year-old Gasly — who has had three straight point-scoring results — has announced he’s extended his contract with the team he joined at the start of 2023.

“I feel very much at home at this great team,” Gasly said. “I enjoy being a real part of both the Formula 1 project and the wider Alpine Cars vision. I’ve been officially here for over 18 months and it has always been the plan to build a long-term project with the team.


“While on-track it’s been a challenging season so far, I remain faithful to the project and I am not going anywhere. I am happy with the changes made, the hard work, and the direction the team is taking.

“There is a lot of potential in this team’s personnel and resources. I’m excited for what is to come in the future and right now I’m focusing on the everyday details that we are putting in to improve our performances.”

Team principal Bruno Famin says Alpine will announce Gasly’s teammate in due course, having now been able to secure the Frenchman’s future to ensure continuity in one of the cars.

“The extension of Pierre’s contract with the team is very pleasing,” Famin said. “He is a driver with huge experience in Formula 1 and continues to show huge amounts of potential on-track. For Alpine as a brand, he is a great ambassador and we therefore look forward to continuing our collaboration.

“While this is important for our future, we do have to keep our eyes close to what is coming and that is focusing on improving our current package. We have high ambitions this current season and we will work tirelessly to achieve those things. We will take our time in deciding Pierre’s teammate and we are excited with the options we have on the table.”

Alpine is running a test with a previous car at Paul Ricard next week to give track time to Jack Doohan and Mick Schumacher, while Carlos Sainz, Zhou Guanyu and Valtteri Bottas have also been linked with the vacancy for next season.
