Changes to the Alpha Tauri AT02
Many changes to the new AT02 are due to the new rules – such as the incision in the underbody in front of the rear wheels. In addition, however, technology director Jody Egginton reveals: “The work that we have put into developing our 2021 car goes far beyond just adapting it to the rule changes. We have changed almost all aerodynamic surfaces and also further developed and re-integrated large parts of the car. “

Also interesting: Alpha Tauri buys the previous year’s wheel suspensions as well as the rear axle, steering and hydraulics from its big brother Red Bull. The regulations would allow the Italians to switch from the 2019 Red Bull suspension to the 2020 suspension in 2021. But you do without it. Instead, the new front suspension, including the new nose, was designed in Faenza. The two available development tokens were also used for this.

Tost thinks Gasly is big: “I think Pierre is one of the strongest drivers in Formula 1 at the moment,” says the Austrian. “Pierre’s good technical understanding enables him to get the most out of the car. He knows how to win a race and if we give him a competitive car then I expect he will be very successful this season. ”
