The Red Bull cues in AlphaTauri's 2020 design

By:

AlphaTauri's lengthy launch presentation was worthwhile given the striking AT01 waiting at its end. It's clear to see where its 2020 car has been influenced by sister team Red Bull, but the former Toro Rosso outfit has retained some original designs.

A new year, a new livery and a new name; say goodbye to Toro Rosso and say hello to AlphaTauri. Named after the Red Bull-owned clothing brand, the team's status as a B-team entity to the lead Red Bull Formula 1 squad remains, as does the driving staff and the team's technical operations in Bicester and Faenza. The new white and matte blue livery looks particularly striking.

How Red Bull's deja vu set Hamilton on the winning path in Spain

An aggressive first corner move from Max Verstappen appeared to have set the Red Bull driver on course for victory in the Spanish Grand Prix. But canny strategy from Mercedes - combined with the absence of Red Bull's number two from the lead group - allowed Lewis Hamilton to pull off a demoralising reversal
