About the car
The Alphatauri AT02 was designed by Scuderia Alphatauri to compete in the 2021 Bahrain GP.
The most beautiful formula one racing car on the starting grid, was driven by the French Pierre Gasly and the Japanese Yuki Tsunoda, a young Red Bull promotional driver, making his debut at the 2021 Bahrain Grand Prix. The Alphatauri AT2 has a V6 turbo hybrid engine, although it is a much-maligned engine, it is a speed monster due to the huge performance gains from the turbo and electric power.
First revealed in February 2021, the AT2 is the last car officially powered by Honda, which is retiring from Formula 1 at the end of the 2021 season. The engine plans have been bought out by Red Bull and Alphatauri so that they do not have to create a complete engine. This is the team’s last car before the technical revolution in 2022.
