Théo Pourchaire in F1 in 2024 with Alfa Romeo?

History

Théo is a young French driver who started Karting at the age of 2 and a half and competition at the age of 7.

He has already been:

  • French F4 Champion
  • German F4 Champion
  • Vice F3 world champion in 2020
  • Vice F3 world champion in 2022

2023

He now drives for the Sauber Academy, previously managed by his compatriot Frédéric VASSEUR, now boss of the Ferrari team.

In 2023 at mid-season:

  • 9 podiums
  • 1 pole position
  • 1 win

That makes him today leader of the championship with 168 points.

2024 ?

On the Sauber side, Bottas has a contract until 2024 and Zhou until 2023.

In 2023 at mid-season, Zhou only finished twice in the points in 9th place, which gives him 4 points today. It doesn’t seem like much, but when you see that Bottas, much more experienced, also only finished twice in the points (once 8th and once 10th) you realize that the car had something to do with it.

Zhou achieves a decent season by beating Bottas several times in qualifying and in the race and qualifying P5 in Hungary showing his abilities. He remains without a contract for 2024!

Will Théo replace Zhou at Alfa Romeo? Maybe. We must not forget the financial impact whether they choose to keep Zhou or to replace him with Pourchaire.

 

It is also possible that Theo could join another team in 2024 or later. We can imagine him one day replacing Sainz at Ferrari to join Frédéric Vasseur and Charles Leclerc, replacing Alonso at Aston Martin or even Hamilton at Mercedes ? This is also possible but probably not in its first season.
