Scuderia AlphaTauri Honda

AlphaTauri F1 Team

Scuderia AlphaTauri, or simply AlphaTauri, is an Italian Formula One racing team and constructor. It is one of two Formula One constructors owned by Austrian beverage company Red Bull, the other being Red Bull Racing. The constructor was rebranded for the 2020 Formula One World Championship from “Toro Rosso” to “AlphaTauri” in order to promote the AlphaTauri fashion brand.According to Franz Tost and Helmut Marko, Scuderia AlphaTauri is no longer the junior team but the sister team to Red Bull Racing.In September 2019, Toro Rosso announced their intention to change their naming rights for the 2020 championship. It was announced on 1 December 2019 that the team had selected “AlphaTauri” as their new moniker to promote parent company Red Bull’s fashion label of the same name by purchasing Toro Rosso’s naming rights. Thus, they became Scuderia AlphaTauri and retired the Scuderia Toro Rosso moniker after fourteen years. The team’s involvement in Formula One can be traced back to the 1985 season when they first competed as Minardi. The team has been owned by Red Bull GmbH since the 2006 season.For the 2021 season, AlphaTauri retained Gasly and signed Yuki Tsunoda to replace Kvyat.Gasly scored the team’s first podium of the year by finishing in third place at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Gasly also consolidated this by finishing 4th at the Dutch and Mexico City Grands Prix. Tsunoda’s best finish was 4th place at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
