Discover the 2020 Team!
Scuderia AlphaTauri is a “paradox” – a brand new name but at the same time, a renowned presence in Formula 1. In our previous incarnation as Scuderia Toro Rosso, we have taken part in the most important motor sport series on the planet since 2006 and the Faenza squad can trace its racing roots even further back than that.
Formula 1 today calls for a high level of specialisation in every area of design and manufacture and the contribution of every member of staff is vital: each small performance increase can make a big difference in the competitive world of F1, both on and off the track.
While our team has an Italian heart, our large family is made up of men and women from all over the world: in fact, there are no fewer than 26 different nationalities represented in our workforce. It is their hard work and experience that has seen the team feature as a protagonist in the F1 World Championship for over a decade.
And now we begin a new era, because Red Bull has entrusted us with the flagship role of promoting its own fashion label, AlphaTauri, which was created in 2016 and will now give its name to our team. On track and at our facilities in Faenza (Italy) and Bicester (UK,) nothing changes, but the look and feel of the team is brand new.
Scuderia AlphaTauri’s Team challenges F1
AlphaTauri is a stand-alone fashion brand featuring innovative
fashion technologies integrated with high-quality and uniquely designed
styles. The brand combines textile innovations, purposeful design and premium materials. Within the F1 environment AlphaTauri can progress and cement its pioneering approach with innovations and textile technologies, acquiring new insights from its involvement with us.
A new name is just one more reason to go into 2020 in a positive frame of mind. Last year, we enjoyed our most successful season since 2008, the highlights being our third place finish in Germany, courtesy of Daniil Kvyat and second in Brazil with Pierre Gasly.
The Russian and the Frenchman make up our most experienced ever driver line-up, our technical team is largely unchanged and of course, Franz Tost is still at the helm, in the role of team principal, as he has been since 2005. Scuderia AlphaTauri, a new name with a well-established racing spirit.
