AlphaTauri has become the second team to reveal their 2021 car, the Italian squad unveiling the new AT02 that Pierre Gasly and F1 debutant Yuki Tsunoda will pilot this season.
Team Principal Tost has set his squad and new driver line-up an ambitious target for the 2021 season:
“In 2020 Scuderia AlphaTauri was a midfield team, we were fighting successfully against the other teams like McLaren, Renault and Racing Point but our target for this year is to consistently be at the top of this midfield pack and to improve further,” he said.
“To achieve this, we have to avoid reliability issues and finish all races in the points. This can only happen if we do not make any mistakes, so we have to be 100% concentrated on our job, race after race, on and off the track, because our competitors are hard to fight. We will do our best to provide a good show for all the F1 fans, who I hope to see back at the track filling the grandstands soon.”
The AT02 features Honda’s new 2021 power unit on the inside and a brand new livery on the outside, as the team look to build on a strong 2020, which saw Pierre Gasly win the Italian Grand Prix. As well as that, Gasly and former teammate Daniil Kvyat’s ultimate haul of 107 points was the most ever secured in the history of either AlphaTauri or Toro Ross
