AlphaTauri have announced their 2022 driver line-up and confirmed their dynamic duo Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda for another year.
Pierre Gasly said, according to the official AlphaTauri announcement: “I am very happy to be moving forward with Scuderia AlphaTauri for another season in Formula 1, especially after seeing the progress that we’ve made as a team since I first joined in 2017. Seeing the performance we’ve shown so far this season, I think there are great things to achieve for the rest of this season and for next year, especially with the upcoming changes to the championship in 2022.
“I’m very excited to see what we can accomplish in the new era of F1 and to keep working with the team as best as I can to bring us forward in the team standings. This year has been very successful so far and I really believe we can work well together to do even better in 2022.”
Continuing his Formula One journey, Yuki Tsunoda added: “I’m really excited to be staying with Scuderia AlphaTauri for a second season. It’s an incredible opportunity and I’m so thankful to the team and Dr Marko for letting me continue to grow my experience in Formula 1.
“I have a very good relationship with Pierre, I have learnt a lot from him already this year and his experience has helped me to keep developing my own skills, so it’s great to be continuing my F1 journey with him. Having recently moved out to Faenza I am feeling very settled within the team and am looking forward to the upcoming season.”
Tsunoda became the first Japanese driver to score points in their debut Formula 1 race and has continued what has been a steep learning curve during his rookie season. Pierre Gasly has been a consistent force this season for the team, whilst undertaking a team leader role this season, and already achieved a podium finish and remains within the top 10 in the drivers’ standings.
