An Australian company making headlines in the world of electric cars has recently been in the news for taking their production operations to the US making chargers.

Wow I have never heard of them here, and I follow such things
Surely they would be more likely to sponsor a Formula E or another EV category than F1?
Time will tell.

Alpine have fired their head of legal affairs as a direct result of the situation with Oscar Piastri last summer. In her position, Benedicte Mercer was directly involved in the contracts of drivers within Alpine, which included Piastri.

Records (at Company House) show that Mercer was 'terminated' on 8 November 2022.

Scapegoat maybe but clearly her function was administration and drawing up of contracts so fair game probably given the merde that it all led to.

Interesting find. Does sounds reasonable that someone would need to take the hit.

Snip Speaking at Sunday's Abu Dhabi season finale, Szafnauer believes Alpine has come out better from F1's standout silly season saga, because he thinks Gasly is a better driver than Piastri will turn out to be.

Oh Otmar, sometimes you should just move on

I guess only time will tell on that one. Only a few years ago we had a poster that was telling us that the 'Honey Badger' was a better driver than Max Verstappen would ever become.

Gasly has looked brilliant at times. This season though, he seems to have gone off the boil somewhat. Whether this is down to car or driver I don't know. I think a change of scenery might do him some good.

I have no idea how Piastri will get on. He was certainly highly sought after.

He may be right, re driver talent or he may be wrong - no way of knowing either way (yet) - no data for Otmar, none for us on that yet.

Agree that he should move on though - the whole saga and many of the things that he had to say did not paint Otmar in a good light at all.

I actually found it quite interesting that when there were questions about Aston Martin component legality this year, Daddy Stroll didn't blaze away threatening legal action in the way that he's threatened previously - made me wonder if it was Otmar winding him up back then and if without that winding up, he is being more circumspect?

Agree with this - Gasly has generally punched above his weight up until this year, has been one of the great shames of this season that we haven't seen some Gasly heroics at some stage. Whatever the cause, Alpine may be a positive change for him or it may not - I'm hopeful that it IS a positive change and we see some special weekends for him as on his day, he can be genuinely special.

As for Piastri, no question that he's good but remains to be seen how good he is in an F1 car and in the way of these things, I don't imagine think it'll be clear to those of us watching until a couple of seasons are under his belt.

One could argue that those coming from a RB designed car will struggle with cars from the Renault/Alpine development path?

On paper it’s a great young line up for a mid field team…should make for an even more interesting battle between Apline v Mclaren next season.

Gasly has stagnated at AT. He needed a fresh change, as he knew he was never going to go back to RBR
