Franz Tost: AlphaTauri seems to be in a good position for the upcoming year

Franz Tost believes that his team are in a really strong position ahead of the start of the 2020 Formula 1 season. The team boss has praised his two drivers, Daniil Kvyat and Pierre Gasly and believes that they can be a real force in the midfield. 

Tost even went as far as to suggest that his current driver line up is the best the team has ever had. 

“Yes, I would underline this, because as we know if we analyse both drivers Daniil Kvyat has a fantastic natural speed," Tost told RaceFans. 

“He won races, he won championships, just remember back in GP3.

“And Pierre Gasly as well, he won races, he won the GP2 championship and he drove last year in the second half of the season some fantastic races.

“Just remember his second place in Sao Paolo when he managed to keep Hamilton behind him one lap.”

AlphaTauri performed well in the first week of testing and overall, things seem positive for the team. 

“We had three very fruitful test days here in Barcelona, completing more than 100 laps every day – 384 in total – and learned a lot about the car, but we still have to work on the final set-up,” he said.

“However, I think we are going in the right direction which is a good sign.

“In general, I must say that Scuderia AlphaTauri seems to be in a good position for the upcoming year.”

It will be interesting to see how well the team do and if they can compete with the likes of Renault again in the midfield.
