Why 2022 Is a Pivotal Year for Pierre Gasly, Yuki Tsunoda at AlphaTauri F1

AlphaTauri’s AT03, or at least some slick renderings, have been presented to the world, but what could be in store for the team in 2022?. The DNA of this AlphaTauri team stretches back to 1985. It entered as minnow Minardi, before being acquired by Red Bull in 2005, transitioning into junior team Toro Rosso, eventually rebranding under its apparel offshoot in 2020. It has never been in such a strong position both on- and off-track.

Yuki Tsunoda Still Has Time

Officially, Red Bull's Scuderia AlphaTauri team no longer exists solely to develop talent for Red Bull Racing. This is probably a good thing, as last year Red Bull finally chose to hire a successful veteran racer from outside of their system to pair with their vaunted prospect Max Verstappen and were immediately rewarded with a Verstappen driver's championship. It theoretically means the company will be mindful of their constant turnover in the team's second car in an effort to find a talent to pair with him, freeing AlphaTauri from dedicating its seasons to effectively giving two candidates long interviews to move up the grid when someone else is fired next season. It is less of a good thing for Yuki Tsunoda, an F1 prospect who suddenly finds himself as a second driver on a team with unclear ambitions and no real path to move to a better affiliated team in the near future.

Yuki Tsunoda Was The Abu Dhabi MVP

Yeah, it’s Tuesday and we’re still talking about that ridiculous F1 race this weekend. While everyone was paying attention to the horrible shitty race stewarding and an absolutely abysmal final five laps for both Lewis Hamilton and the sport in general, an F1 rookie was putting down a monster lap and securing his best finish ever. On the final lap Tsunoda managed to catch and pass a Mercedes to take fourth place, his highest position in F1.

We Must Protect Yuki Tsunoda At All Costs

With a grid penalty looming over his head before qualifying even began, he did the best he could to get up into Q3 and give teammate Pierre Gasly a nice tow down the long front straight, but he was lambasted on social media for allegedly scuppering the flying laps of Sergio Perez and Max Verstappen. In the race he was mired in the mid-field and punted several feet into the air as he was tagged from behind at the first corner.
