Alpha Tauri AT01

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

Fantastic livery. Glossy on matte is one of my weaknesses.
Just wish it had been the other way round, I think a matte white would look killer 😄

I think they are hidding a lot from their new car. I don't believe we will see that on Barcelona or the shakedown tomorrow...

They’re running their own design of front suspension it seems, which is interesting as the rear is from the RB15.

Swap the black for bright, anodized aluminum red color, and then move to the matte white.

Heaven!

Its the same RB font suspension.. at least the guts of it. The arms are different of course but the kinematics should be Identical to RB15.

late to the party but wow, promising car, and interesting livery!
looks a whole lot like the BMW Williams F1 livery of the montoya and ralf era
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

Basically a rebranded, simplified RB15. Marko just confirmed. Should help them get in the top 5...

My first thought too! A lovely reminder of a great car and of course Montoya :)

Lots of 2019 elements on that car. I wonder what they're hiding. Red Bull did similar. I hope they have that Honda packaged tighter than a tight thing

I like the shapes of that engine cover, it's an RB-style bodywork but it's quite unique thanks to the "flattened" top surface that starts at the intakes and runs all the way to the back. (is it related to the cooling layout/internal airflow? or is it there to manage lift and the outside air flow? you got 1 hour - no windtunnel allowed, only CFD and eye-CFD)
+ the ferrari-style sidepod intake vanes that have more agressive angles and shapes.
