AlphaTauri pick Valentine’s Day to unleash their 2022-spec AT03
AlphaTauri have announced the launch date for their all-new 2022-spec car, the AT03.
The car, set to be piloted by Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda, will break cover on February 14.
AlphaTauri are the fifth team to have confirmed the launch date for the car that will take them into F1’s exciting new era of regulations, following on from announcements from Aston Martin, Ferrari, Mercedes and McLaren.
2022 will see AlphaTauri use power units from Red Bull Powertrains for the first time, with Honda having announced their departure from the sport at the end of 2021 – with the newly-formed Red Bull Powertrains division having taken over the Japanese firm’s intellectual property.
It will be an important year for their drivers too, with Gasly coming off the back of an impressive 2021 season that he called his “most consistent” in F1 – and which saw him score over 100 points in a season for the first time in his career – while Tsunoda will look to build on the positives from an up-and-down rookie campaign that was capped by a season-best P4 at the final race of 2021 in Abu Dhabi.
