First post-launch Race Moment: Allez Alpine

This week’s F1 Manager 2023 Race Moment, Allez Alpine, sees players tasked with securing points for Alpine in the Belgian Grand Prix. With the risk of traffic after pit stops, plus a less-than-ideal strategy, this could be a tough one.

This Race Moment begins on lap 25 of the Belgian Grand Prix. With Esteban Ocon needing to pit soon, and Pierre Gasly facing a difficult strategy decision, it’s down to you to secure as many points for the French team.

Considering how the real Grand Prix fared for strategy and tyre degradation, this is by no means an easy challenge. But with valuable points on the line, only the right calls will be good enough.

Will you be bringing the points back to Enstone, or will it be yet another blip in Alpine’s season?
