Nyck de Vries has been at the AlphaTauri factory in Faenza, Italy this week to do his first seat fit for the team.

Images of De Vries on AlplhaTauri's social media with the post "Welcome to Faezna" were accommodated with images showing the driver getting comfortable in the seat fit.

The Dutchman will replace Pierre Gasly and pair Yuki Tsunoda next year, however there are no plans to run De Vries in any of the remaining FP1 sessions with the team according to Team Principal Franz Tost.

"Currently it's not planned to do an FP1 session with Nyck, and I think that we will do another F1 session with Liam Lawson, in America or in Mexico," he explained to media.
