After a bad start to the season, together with the poor results achieved in previous seasons,
Alpine made a drastic decision and stopped Otmar Szafnauer, Alan Permane and Pat Fry.
Now, in the middle of ‘gardening’ (a period that must be spent until returning to work for another team), the Romanian has given an interview to ‘Motor Sport Magazine’ in which, among other things, he has offered to
Michael Andretti. “I would love to help you”Otmar has pointed out about a project to be the eleventh team on the grid that It has the approval of the FIA, but not of the FOM… still.
“I had some conversations with Michael Andretti.
He called me before I even went to Alpine and I told him I would love to help him. “First they have to get registration for Formula 1,” she said.
If he returns, Szafnauer would like to lead Andretti’s project: “I would like to continue, but I have to be in a position where my experience and skills can be used. I estimate that I have another five or seven years left.
Maybe I have too high an opinion of myself… “But I think I still have the skills that will allow me to form a good team to be competitive in Formula 1.”
