Clarkson rejoined Ocon and team mate Pierre Gasly at the British Grand Prix last month.

    After meeting Alpine’s latest new staff hiring the drivers began to have genuine doubts about the management’s competence.

  2. What shall we bet on next?

    1. Formula One. How hard can it be?

  7. “Don’t worry, chaps, I do understand how it feels not to be in Top Gear for yet another season…”

    1. Super!

  8. Thank you for the beer, mate. Can we have another?.

  9. “So which of you is this week’s star in a reasonably slow car?”

    1. LOL

  14. “We have another five-year plan coming” – “Oh no, anyway…”

  15. Alpine is in trouble? Fired the management?

    Anyway; …

  16. Alpine is still a mess.

    Oh no! Anyway

  17. Ocon: “If I get you a steak, do you promise not to hit me?”

    Have just started tractor driving lessons on the farm; might come in handy with this years car…….

  20. Clarkson: “My technical director James May is designing a 2025 F1 car using Meccano parts…”
    Ocon & Gasly: “We’re in!”

  21. To his delight, Gasly found a used car salesman who managed to sell his malfunctioning Morris Marina to an unsuspecting buyer.

  22. Alpine Team Boss – how hard can it be?

  23. ‘The weather? Sunny with a light breeze, with a slight chance of piano downpour, centered around underperforming automobiles’

    Ah, Steven! Are you the French chap who stole another driver’s girlfriend?

  27. I reckon my Lambo could beat your Alpine.

  29. “I love eating French! Come on, near”

  30. Alpine drivers meet the latest member of the senior driving academy

  31. “The meat here is cooked, right?”

  32. Ocon and Gasly hope that one of Clarkson’s infamous ‘coversions’ might help propel them up the grid, or at the very least across a river and down a snowy mountain.

  33. Esteban and Pierre agreeing with Clarkson that Peugeot’s are indeed rubbish!
