Moreover, both Alpines were also caught up in an incident down at Portier, after Esteban Ocon collided with his team-mate Pierre Gasly.

Will Alpine replace Ocon for Canada?

Sky Sports pundit Ted Kravitz revealed after the Monaco Grand Prix, that Famin may be considering replacing Ocon for Canada, seen in conversation with reserve driver Jack Doohan.

According to Kravitz, Famin revealed there would be consequences for Ocon after the first lap incident, with the boss about to make a ‘tough decision’.

Whilst Doohan has been tipped to make his F1 debut, could another star be an option for Alpine?

Prior to the Monaco Grand Prix, German driver Mick Schumacher made it clear that he was targeting a return to F1.

"We have to hope that the dominoes fall in my direction and hopefully I end up with a seat,” he said to Sky Germany.

"What I can do is give my best performance in the WEC. But also put in a good performance as reserve driver [at Mercedes] and continue to hold discussions."

"Mick is doing an incredible job.”
