The Formula One grid for 2025 and beyond is beginning to take shape. Hot on the heals of Aston Martin announcing a long-term contract extension with Lance Stroll on Thursday afternoon in Austria, it was the BWT Alpine F1 Team’s turn to make their driver announcement.

French driver Pierre Gasly who has amassed 32 starts for the Enstone-based outfit and scored 67 points has signed a multi-year contract extension with the team.

In 2020, while driving for Scuderia AlphaTauri, Gasly scored his maiden race victory in Monza at the Italian Grand Prix.

Speaking following the announcement, Gasly said:

I feel very much at home at this great team. 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.”

Bruno Famin, Team Principal of BWT Alpine F1 Team  said:

“The extension of Pierre’s contract with the team is very pleasing. 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 team-mate and we are excited with the options we have on the table.”

The team will announce Gasly’s teammate for 2025 at a later date.
