AlphaTauri contract for De Vries ready

Dutchman looks set to join AlphaTauri in 2023 after meetings with Helmut Marko in Austria.

Nyck de Vries has been a man in demand for several teams including Alpine and Williams, however it looks like Red Bull will snatch up the Formula E world champion RacingNews365.com has learned. After meeting with Red Bull motorsport advisor Helmut Marko, the Dutchman looks set to join AlphaTauri for 2023 and pair with Yuki Tsunoda. Things still depend on whether Red Bull will enable Pierre Gasly to make a switch to Alpine to replace Fernando Alonso, as previously reported. The Frenchman wants to leave for Alpine and Red Bull reportedly wants to let him go, but Gasly is still formally under contract with Red Bull to race for AlphaTauri until the end of 2023. If both moves come through it would mean only seats at Williams and Haas will be available for next year. De Vries impressed F1 on his race debut with Williams at the Italian Grand Prix last weekend, bringing home a top 10 finish and points for the team currently last in the Constructors' Championship.
