DoohanAlpine’s Jack Doohan Confirmed For Mexico And Abu Dhabi Free Practice

Alpine’s reserve driver Jack Doohan has been confirmed to be driving for the team in their mandatory rookie Free Practice sessions at the Mexico and Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. He will drive Pierre Gasly’s car in Mexico but will swap to drive Esteban Ocon’s car for the Abu Dhabi session.

Doohan will join fellow F2 drivers Frederik Vesti and Oliver Bearman in Mexico as well as Indycar driver Pato O’Ward in Abu Dhabi, and potentially a number of other drivers suspected to be announced soon by teams to complete their mandatory rookie running.

Finishing the F2 season at Abu Dhabi, Doohan currently sits fourth in the Drivers’ Championship with the potential to improve that position. The Australian driver has driven a strong season with Invicta Virtuosi Racing for his second year with the team.

This will not be his first time out in an F1 car, having completed the Free Practice sessions at the same venues last year during the 2022 season, finishing P19 in both despite stopping early in Mexico due to power unit issues.

On top of this experience, Doohan regularly tested a range of Alpine F1 cars at various different tracks as part of his testing programme due to his reserve driver role. On top of this, he completes regular race team support in Alpine’s simulator at the Enstone factory during race weekends and during race weekend preparation.

Doohan took to Instagram to say: “Very grateful to BWT Alpine F1 team for the opportunity to drive the A523 in Free practice at the Mexican and Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Can’t wait to go through the motions in a weeks time and hop into the car!”
