Well, this was unexpected, it has to be said.

We gave you the opportunity to determine who should replace Esteban Ocon at Alpine and partner Pierre Gasly for 2025 following the former's release at the end of this year.

We narrowed it down to five options, and there was a clear winner - with RacingNews365 readers giving the nod to Mercedes reserve Mick Schumacher, who has spent this season on the sidelines following his release from Haas at the end of last season.

Schumacher scored 38.85 per cent of the votes, beating current Alpine reserve Jack Doohan by eight per cent, with Carlos Sainz, Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu not even collecting enough votes in combination to overhaul the German driver.

The return of Flavio Briatore to F1 as a special advisor to Alpine has allowed him to tout for Sainz but it seems you do not fancy his chances of being with the team for next season.

You may think he is best served with another team rather than Alpine.

 See the full results of the poll below!

Who should be Pierre Gasly's new Alpine team-mate?
