Together with the models the new car "stepped" on the runaway, with a brand new livery, albeit similar to the last year's one.
More dull blue on the front wing and on the monocoque, that intertwines with white horizontally, and very original white rims.
Also some new aerodynamic elements born fron the huge effort in Fiorano, and of course a new lineup of drivers.
The 20 year-old Yuki Tsunoda, latest rookie to join the Red Bull F1 programme, will be alongside Pierre Gasly during this 2021 season.
“I think he will be very competitive within a few races,” Tost told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“He understands the technique of the car and he is very strong in fighting duels. He has already shown that in Formula 2. It is true that Tsunoda will get little time in the new car, due to the new rules".
"We set up a whole program for him and so last year in November he was already driving an old car of ours. Then came the rookie test in Abu Dhabi, another test at Imola and another at the Misano circuit" he added.
The team has an excellent potential, as demonstrated last year. Gasly regained confidence after the bad period in the RedBull suit, and improved as a driver, becoming very consistent.
Two young drivers eager to do good and a new fast car powered by Honda could be the secret for a very good 2021 season for AlphaTauri.
