AlphaTauri has been in the sport since 2020 but that’s just in terms of the name, the Faenza-based team actually started in F1 in the mid-80s.
They started as everyone’s favourite minnows, Minardi, and ran under that guise until the end of 2005 when they were bought by Red Bull to become an effective sister team called Toro Rosso.
In 2008, the team achieved its first-ever victory thanks to Sebastian Vettel’s storming drive at Monza, with many of the team members remaining from the Minardi days.
In 2020 AlphaTauri became the new name for the team and another famous day at Monza that season was achieved as Pierre Gasly took his maiden Grand Prix victory.
