AlphaTauri will be testing at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola next week, as will Ferrari. Five days are scheduled and the new car for 2021 will also be in action.
The Formula One season starts in mid-March with the winter test in Bahrain, followed by the first race in Sakhir. With three days of testing in Bahrain, however, many teams and drivers are looking for other ways to get the necessary testing days. On Thursday it became clear that Ferrari will test with Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc next week.
With ‘Rookie’ Yuki Tsunoda in its ranks, AlphaTauri has also decided to set up a full test programme. According to Italian Motorsport.it AlphaTauri will be in action for five days at Imola. On Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 January AlphaTauri will test with the 2018 car and again on 23 and 25 February.
These days will be mainly dedicated to Tsunoda, but Pierre Gasly is also expected to make his metres. In between these two tests, AlphaTauri will also hold a filming day with the new 2021 car, where we can probably get a first glimpse of Franz Tost’s new car.
