Jack Alpine – Alpine’s 2023 Reserve Driver
Nyck de Vries’ impressive debut in F1 for Williams has him well placed to fill Alpine’s 2023 race seat; however, Alpine CEO Laurent Rossi prefers someone who will score points straightaway.
Jack Doohan may be among those driving Virtuosi this season – as part of its Driver Academy, and as reserve driver at Renault-owned outfit Virtuosi.
Early Life and Education
Jack was active in many community organizations and served as a deacon at First Baptist Church of Alpine. Additionally, he enjoyed an accomplished career as a pharmacist renowned for his wisdom advice. Furthermore, he dedicated much of his free time delivering Meals on Wheels as well as always being there to assist others.
Jack Doohan will make his Grand Prix weekend debut at the Mexican City GP this Friday during Free Practice 1. Since joining Alpine Academy from Red Bull’s junior programme in 2022, Australian Jack Doohan has shown exceptional promise throughout his rookie FIA Formula 2 campaign in which he earned two race wins and three podium finishes to finish sixth overall. Private test days scheduled in Monza and Qatar as well as multiple outings during FP1 are set up throughout 2023 to further his experience on contemporary machinery.
Jack kept himself busy over the Miami Grand Prix weekend with team meetings and driver debriefs between media appearances in preparation for his role as Alpine’s 2023 Reserve Driver. Beginning his day by connecting with family back in Australia before meeting up with BWT Alpine F1 Team for in-season testing of FIA Formula 2, Jack spent most of his time practicing his karting moves while learning all aspects of racing F1.
Doohan could quickly move up into Alpine racing if he were to win F2, although spending another season in F2 might prove more prudent and allow for him to make an earlier transition to higher-grade machinery – this may mean forgoing any possible F1 drive next season but would ultimately prove wiser decision.
Achievement and Honors
Jack was an individual from what Tom Brokaw dubbed “The Greatest Generation,” having served on Liberty Ships during World War II before moving to West Seattle where he built homes and apartments. His passion for skiing led to involvement with Crystal Mountain Ski Area where he was an original stockholder as well as volunteer fundraiser.
Reading moved his family to Ketchum where they became heavily involved with city government. He advocated for open space preservation and was an avid supporter of free local bus system; ultimately serving on city council for 11 years.
In 2021, he joined MP Motorsport for the final rounds of the FIA Formula 2 Championship where he became vice-champion. Following this success, Alpine elevated him to their Formula 1 reserve driver pool as they celebrated him becoming Formula 2 champion and winning its championship.
Jack lives in Seattle with his wife Cathy and runs Indigo Alpine Guides, an adventure travel guiding service offering unique expeditions. He has guided backcountry trips across the world as well as first ascents of Himalayan peaks; additionally, he writes mysteries featuring Milo.
Jack Doohan made an impressive showing in 2021 FIA Formula 2 Championship with MP Motorsport and made his Grand Prix weekend debut as the team’s Reserve Driver, finishing second overall and making his Grand Prix weekend debut as Reserve Driver for that Grand Prix weekend. Now ready to assume greater responsibilities this year, he will assist the team during programme meetings, driver debriefs, track sessions and programme meetings alike.
At the Miami Grand Prix, he participated in strategy meetings and drivers’ debriefs before watching Esteban Ocon drive the A522 at both Autodromo Nazionale di Monza and Barcelona for FIA Formula 2 testing sessions.
A person’s net worth provides an accurate gauge of financial security. Calculated by subtracting liabilities from assets, this calculation offers more accurate estimation than simply counting income; job loss or reduced working hours could impact a person’s ability to provide income.
Otmar Szafnauer, who recently joined Alpine F1 team as team principal, is reported to have amassed an estimated net worth of over $1 Million. If he eventually makes it into F1, his wealth should increase accordingly.
Jack Doohan is currently competing in Formula 2 series with Virtuosi Racing and hopes to secure an F1 reserve driver role by 2022.
