In the Formula 1 2020 season, we’ve got a new name in the grid, a new name in the paddock, and that comes in the form of Scuderia AlphaTauri. however they aren’t a new team they actually started racing all the way back in 1985, under the name Minardi, they then transformed in 2006 into a team more commonly known as Scuderia Toro Rosso. and now for the 2020 season they’re changing things up once again into Scuderia Alpha Tauri.
Alpha Tauri began life under the name Minardi based in Forenza Italy, the small Italian team struggled in their early days of competition. however that didn’t mean they weren’t popular, they were a real underdog team and whilst they never quite tasted victory or even a podium between 1985 and 2006.
