Since the preseason in Bahrain, AlphaTauri was one of the teams that had advanced the most compared to last season, something logical considering that they follow a line very similar to that of Red Bull. Despite this, the Faenza team has still not managed to turn those good feelings into results.
More potential than demonstrated
Having seen the first eight weekends of 2021, we could say without fear of being wrong that AlphaTauri is one of the teams or the team that has missed the most points or opportunities at this start of the season. Whether due to accidents or errors by its pilots, the AT02 has not yet achieved the expected results.
Speaking of mistakes, the rookie pilot Yuki Tsunoda has been one of the pilots who has made the most mistakes so far, even receiving the occasional criticism from the always controversial Helmut Marko. In fact, the eight points of the Japanese rider contrast with the 37 that his teammate Pierre Gasly has been able to add up to now.
Because of this, Yuki Tsunoda himself recently stated that he hopes to start becoming more regular soon and targeted the Maranello team as a target: “I think we have a good pace, maybe I shouldn’t make comparisons with Ferrari, but for the future and with the constructors’ championship in mind, we and Ferrari should be fighting. So, yes, we have to try harder “.
Currently, the Italian team occupies fourth place in the Constructors’ World Cup with a total of 108 points, 12 less than McLaren, a team that is currently the best of the rest. On the part of AlphaTauri, the Faenza-based team has not been able to add more than 46 points to date, but yes, they are more than convinced that these results do not reflect the feelings and performance of the AT02, so they are confident for the rest of the season and aim high with their goals.
