Alpine driver Pierre Gasly ‘given more leeway’ to avoid penalty points
Alpine has implemented stricter radio communications protocols in an effort to support Pierre Gasly, who currently sits closest to a race ban due to penalty points. When Gasly joined Alpine, he had accumulated 10 penalty points, with a race ban triggered by reaching 12 points. Currently, he has eight points, and two of them are set to expire on July 10th.
With three races scheduled before the expiration date—Canada, Austria, and Silverstone—Alpine has outlined its plans to assist Gasly. This includes refining their radio communications following Gasly’s recent three-place grid penalties for impeding rivals during qualifying at the Spanish Grand Prix.
