Pierre Gasly enjoys first outing alongside Jack Doohan as BWT Alpine F1 Team rounds off 2022 season

Pierre Gasly took the wheel of the A522 Formula 1 car for the first time today alongside Alpine Academy’s Jack Doohan as BWT Alpine F1 Team concluded its 2022 on-track campaign at Yas Marina in Pirelli’s 2023 tyre testing.

Just two days after meeting its season objective of finishing fourth in the Constructors’ Championship, the team was back in Abu Dhabi for the final official on-track session of the year with Pierre and Jack in action alongside the race team.

Pierre completed 130 laps as he enjoyed his first taste of Alpine machinery ahead of becoming a full-time race driver in 2023 alongside Esteban Ocon, with Jack – taking part in Pirelli’s Young Driver 2023 tyre test – completing 111 laps as he continues his Formula 1 driving development.

Pierre’s programme centred around familiarisation to the A522 alongside learning about 2023 Pirelli rubber.

Pierre Gasly, 130 laps: “Firstly, thanks to the entire team for making me feel so welcome over the last two days and I’m feeling ready to begin this next chapter in my career. It was a fantastic feeling to drive the A522 for the first time, and, I must say, it’s an impressive car.

The objectives for me today were all about getting used to my new surroundings, working closely with the engineers and, generally, building up my learning in the car and getting an understanding for its characteristics. We completed many laps – as per our plan – and I’m already very excited to fully embed myself in the team.

I’m looking forward to visiting everyone at Viry and Enstone, debriefing on this test, before working towards our objectives alongside Esteban for the 2023 season.”

Jack Doohan, 111 laps: “It’s been another good experience driving a Formula 1 car today and I’m very grateful to Alpine for this opportunity. It’s been a busy day, plenty of laps, and a lot of new things to take on board, and I’m pretty pleased with how it’s progressed.

Last weekend in Free Practice 1 was only one hour long, so to have a full day in the car is extremely useful as you can get a lot done in a less pressured environment. Thanks to Alpine for a brilliant year and I’m excited for the hard work to continue next season. Now my focus turns back to Formula 2 again where I’m back in the car for three days of testing in Abu Dhabi before the off-season.”


Alan Permane, Sporting Director:
“It was great to have Pierre in the car for the first time today as it’s very important for him to get up to speed quickly in order to hit the ground running in 2023. We have just three days of pre-season testing next season, so today’s test is particularly useful for us to complete some of the small but important tasks on any new driver checklist.

Pierre’s day mainly consisted of familiarisation work and getting him used to the car and our systems as well as gaining a further understanding on Pirelli’s 2023 tyres. We know Pierre is a top-level driver and he did a very good job today to embed himself within the team.

Jack was on the other side of the garage in the Young Driver Test and he again – like in FP1 last Friday – was faultless in the car as he continues his learning and progress in Formula 1 machinery. The trackside team returns to Viry and Enstone now ahead of the off-season, so thanks to them for a very good year.”
