The Scueria Alpha Tauri Formula One Team revealed their new look AT02 on Friday morning along with their new driver lineup of Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda who makes his Formula One debut in Bahrain next month. The unveiling at Alpha Tuari’s new showroom in Salzburg showroom coincided with the launch of their new clothing collection.

Speaking at the presentation, Scuderia Toro Rosso Team Principal Franz Tost commented saying:

“The decision to go for Pierre and Yuki in 2021 was taken because Scuderia AlphaTauri’s philosophy is still to give talented young drivers from the Red Bull Junior Program the opportunity to step up to F1 and to educate them – this is why Yuki now gets his chance. “With Pierre on Yuki’s side we have an experienced driver, who can help our Japanese rookie to develop faster, but at the same time we can aim for good results. I think this pair is the best possible scenario to achieve both our targets, and I’m also confident this will be a successful one.”

Pierre Gasly who took his maiden Grand Prix victory last year in Monza commented saying:

“I’m ready to take on the role of team leader. Yuki is a very quick driver, and he will help us move the team forward – we will work together to achieve that. “I really believe last year was the team’s best in terms of the way it worked, the development, the performance and the way it managed the race weekends. I’m always hungry for more, and I’m sure we can achieve great things in 2021.”

Yuki Tsunado commented on the new car saying:

“I’ve been lucky enough to spend some time with Scuderia AlphaTauri ahead of the season, so I’m already developing strong relationships and learning a lot from them – including Pierre, who is an incredible talent. My main goal is to learn quickly and deliver results as soon as possible, and I’m really excited to get started.”

Ahmet Mercan, CEO AlphaTauri, summarized:

“This is a triple reveal at a unique point of time: a new AlphaTauri Showroom where fashion meets F1, a first look at the AW21 AlphaTauri collection and the unveiling of the new Scuderia AlphaTauri F1 livery and driver pairing.”
