Alpine F1: Doohan to Participate in FP1 Sessions in Mexico and Abu Dhabi
The Alpine F1 team has confirmed that Australian driver Jack Doohan will be participating in the first practice sessions at two upcoming Formula 1 races. Doohan, who currently competes in Formula 2, will have the opportunity to drive Pierre Gasly’s A523 car for the practice session at Autodromo Hermanos Rodrigues in Mexico City next weekend.
This is not the first time that Doohan has had the chance to participate in a Formula 1 practice session. Last year, he took part in FP1 sessions at the same two circuits, and this year he will also get the chance to showcase his skills at the Abu Dhabi season finale next month when he takes over Esteban Ocon’s car.
Doohan’s previous experience in FP1 sessions and extensive testing with the Alpine team have prepared him well for these upcoming opportunities. As a rising star in the racing world, these sessions will provide valuable experience and exposure for Doohan as he continues to work towards his goal of competing in Formula 1.
Alpine F1 team principal, Laurent Rossi, expressed his confidence in Doohan’s abilities, stating that they have seen his progress and development over the past year and are excited to have him back behind the wheel for these FP1 sessions. Rossi believes that Doohan’s participation will provide the team with valuable feedback and insights that can contribute to their overall performance.
The opportunity to participate in FP1 sessions is a significant step for any driver looking to make their mark in the Formula 1 world. It allows them to get a feel for the car, work closely with the team, and showcase their skills on a global stage. For Doohan, these sessions will be crucial in his ongoing journey towards achieving his dream of becoming a Formula 1 driver.
As fans eagerly await the upcoming races in Mexico and Abu Dhabi, there is no doubt that all eyes will be on Jack Doohan as he takes to the track in the Alpine F1 car. With his determination, talent, and the support of the team, the future looks bright for this young Australian driver.
