Alpine existed in a category of its own in 2023. Not rapid enough to challenge the fastest five (Red Bull, Mercedes, Ferrari, McLaren and Fernando Alonso/Aston Martin), but easily quicker than the rest. Which meant all Pierre Gasly could do is beat teammate Esteban Ocon – and he did. Just.

Australian Grand Prix Stats
Races: 4
Best qualifying: 11th (2022)
Best race result: 9th (2022)
Podiums: 0
Points Finishes: 1

It was close – each driver had a solitary podium but Gasly’s better finishing record saw him four points clear of Ocon – and while there were instances that generated Gallic arm-gestures between the childhood rivals (think the final Melbourne re-start), the all-French driver line-up was largely calm. Compared to the constant management chaos within Alpine, certainly.

Gasly’s been around a while – 2024 is his seventh full season – and he’s fallen into a predicable pattern; every year he’ll seemingly sneak in a podium result, finish just inside or outside the top 10 overall, and neither transform nor underperform in the machinery at his disposal.
