Alonso voted F1's best 'new' signing

Fernando Alonso has been voted as the driver who will perform best at his new team in the coming F1 season after moving from Alpine to Aston Martin.

Six drivers will race for new teams this year, with three rookies - Nyck de Vries, Oscar Piastri and Logan Sargeant - on the grid.

The more experienced drivers changing teams are Fernando Alonso and Pierre Gasly, whilst Nico Hülkenberg returns after three years on the sidelines.
