Scuderia AlphaTauri is the latest team to reveal the launch date of its 2021 charger, with the Honda-powered AT02 machine set to be unveiled on February 19.
The Faenza-based squad which won last year’s Italian Grand Prix at Monza with Pierre Gasly – its second F1 victory – is currently second in line in the presentation order after McLaren, which will pull the cover off its car in February 15, and before Alfa Romeo on February 22 and championship winning team Mercedes on March 2.
While Gasly will once again defend AlphaTauri’s colours, the Frenchman will have a new teammate on his side, with Honda protégé Yuki Tsunoda replacing Daniil Kvyat.

The highly-rated 20-year-old has already put significant mileage under his belt this year with his new team as gets up to speed with F1, running with a 2019-spec car last week at Imola and earlier this week at Misano.
As a reminder, F1 will kick off its three days of pre-season testing on March 12 in Bahrain.
