F1 silly season is in full swing, and Aston Martin has confirmed who will fill Sebastian Vettel’s seat when he retires at the end of the season.  

Fernando Alonso announced he will join Aston Martin in 2023, and the team confirmed he is on a multi-year contract. This comes after Vettel announced last Thursday that he will retire from F1 at the end of the season and just as the sport is heading to summer break. 

The Spaniard said as recently as Thursday that he was looking to stay at Alpine, his home since his return to F1 in 2021. Alonso will now compete alongside Lance Stroll while Alpine will have a seat to fill alongside Esteban Ocon. 

“This Aston Martin team is clearly applying the energy and commitment to win, and it is therefore one of the most exciting teams in Formula One today,” Alonso said in a statement. “I have known Lawrence and Lance for many years and it is very obvious that they have the ambition and passion to succeed in Formula One.
