Scuderia AlphaTauri released a documentary to celebrate the first season on the grid with their new name.
The documentary is named “Open the Doors” and follows the preparations for the start of the new season in Austria. It starts by revealing the livery. The new fresh livery, the new name all mark the start of a brand new story.
While most teams this year went all the way with the release of their car, Scuderia AlphaTauri went for the old-school way. They released the car in the Red Bull Hanger-7 in Salzburg. The new Scuderia AlphaTauri livery was elected the best livery on the grid during the testing in Barcelona.
At this point that the documentary goes away from the usual F1 tale because, after flying to Melbourne… They had to turn around and fly back again. The documentary shares the thoughts of Team Principal Franz Tost on the FIA’s decision to cancel the race. He also recounts the shock and uncertainty of the team’s long flight home and his eerie drive on Italy’s empty streets to their home in Faenza.
Then the focus shifts to the intense period of the lockdown, the rush to start the triple header in Austria and Hungary.
As for Pierre Gasly and Daniil Kvyat, they are seen very fired up to get going in Melbourne, and then, like runners who have jumped the start and called back to the blocks, they express their impatience and delight to finally go racing again.
It also features the state-of-the-art facility in Faenza and captures the mood at the start of Scuderia AlphaTauri’s very unusual debut season.
You can watch the “Open the Doors” on the Red Bull TV App.
