Alfa Romeo has organised a private test for Pourchaire which will take place alongside Pirelli’s 18-inch tyre test programme for the 2022 season.

The 17-year-old will get his first F1 run out in a 2019-spec Alfa Romeo C38 at the Hungarian Grand Prix venue.

“We have some tests to do with young drivers and we will see next week what happens. It’s more related to the academy," Alfa Romeo team principal Frederic Vasseur said at the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Asked who will be driving for the team, Vasseur replied: "We will see next week." 

Pourchaire currently sits sixth in the F2 standings during his rookie campaign and claimed his first victory in the Monaco feature race.

The Frenchman graduated to F2 after finishing runner-up to Oscar Piastri in last year’s Formula 3 championship.

Prior to that, Pourchaire won the French F4 championship in 2018 and ADAC Formula 4 championship in 2019, the same year his affiliation with Sauber began.

Alfa Romeo is yet to confirm its line-up for the 2022 F1 season, with both Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi’s deals set to expire at the end of the current season.

McLaren and Ferrari will also be in action at Budapest on Wednesday for Pirelli, while Williams racer George Russell is testing the 18-inch tyres for Mercedes on Tuesday.
