AlphaTauri presents new-look F1 auto for 2020

Italian Formula One racing team Alpha Tauri at Hangar 7 in Salzburg Austria

The team is targeting a place in the top five of the constructors championship

The Toro Rosso team has formally completed its rebrand to Alpha Tauri by unveiling its race vehicle for the 2020 Formula One season.

For many teams though, once they set on their corporate or sponsor colours, their liveries can often end up being fairly similar from one year to the next.

Red Bull renamed the team Toro Rosso, as a nod to its Italian heritage, and it became recognised as the drinks company's junior outfit.

Its new identity was formally launched during a fashion-based event in Red Bull's Hangar-7 in Salzburg on Friday evening.

In a major change from previous liveries, a white and matte blue design was displayed on a 2019 vehicle, with heavy Honda branding.

Their name "Alpha Tauri" is plastered over the new auto along with some of their sponsors like Moose and myWorld.

At the same time, images of the 2020 vehicle - known as the AT01 - were released online, incorporating a number of Red Bull parts due to a close technical partnership with Red Bull Technology. In this case Alpha Tauri has two drivers who have experienced life at Red Bull. Pierre Gasly started previous year at Red Bull but was sent back to Toro Rosso after a poor start to the season.

Although both drivers raced for Toro Rosso in 2017, Kvyat's 15 races and Gasly's five outings - in a season when the team ran six drivers - did not coincide.
