AlphaTauri has passed the important crash tests of the FIA more than a month before the Formula 1 test days of 2022. All teams must pass this test before they can participate in an F1 season with their car. Franz Tost’s team is the third team on the grid to have passed the crash tests for next season.
The motorsport safety body has already received a visit from Ferrari and Haas. Both stables also passed the test, in which the cars are tested for safety during a crash under the supervision of the FIA. It is important here that the so-called ‘survival cell’ withstands the tests without breaking.
AlphaTauri hard at work for the AT03
“Season 2022: the first step has been taken for the AT03”, let the Italian race stable know. The AlphaTauri engineers are busy working on the cars of Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda. “While there is a lot going on at our factory in Faenza, we passed the F1 crash tests.”
