The Alpha Tauri F1 team in Imola with two F1 cars for Gasly and Kvyat

The Enzo e Dino Ferrari reopens its doors to Formula 1. The Alpha Tauri team has chosen the Emilian track, which has just renewed its Grade 1 license, to carry out the filming day with the AT01 which will be driven by the two official drivers, Daniil Kvyat and Pierre Gasly.

The FIA regulations limit the distance allowed for promotional shots to just 100 km, so the team from Faenza has also combined the use of this year's car with a Toro Rosso STR13 that can run without any limit. The car under test will introduce in the debut of next week at the Red Bull Ring a package of aerodynamic innovations that Gasly and Kvyat have had the opportunity to test in Imola.

For the team, this is also an opportunity to put into practice for the first time in the pits the anti-COVID-19 safety protocol that will be applied in Austria, with the obligation to wear masks and gloves and respect social distancing.

Great emotion for the President of Formula Imola Uberto Selvatico Estense. "Feeling the sound of a Formula One power unit on our track was a thrilling emotion and I want to wish the AlphaTauri team a huge good luck for the season that is about to start."
