Williams tease 'announcement' in wake of Oscar Piastri's contract fiasco at Alpine

Williams look set to join the party in what has already been a busy F1 summer break with the team teasing an announcement later today. The mid-season break has already seen Sebastian Vettel announce his impending retirement from F1 along with Fernando Alonso coming in as his shock replacement at Aston Martin.

But just 24 hours ago saw sensational development regarding Oscar Piastri, who has been strongly tipped for a seat at Alpine from next year. The team put out a statement saying that Piastri would be taking a seat alongside Esteban Ocon from next season.

However, in a shock twist, Piastri took to social media to deny any agreement was in place and that he “will not be driving for Alpine next year”. The chaotic start to the summer break looks set to continue this afternoon now too with Williams making an announcement.

The F1 team took to Twitter with a short post informing fans of potentially big news coming soon. It read: “Announcement @ 15:00 BST.”
