A clear frontrunner for an Alpha Tauri seat in 2021 has emerged. Honda-linked Formula 2 driver Yuki Tsunoda, 20, is forth overall in his first Formula 2 campaign this year.
After winning an F2 race for the first time at Silverstone, the Japanese said: “For sure I need lots of wins and above all more consistency.
Red Bull has seen so many talents on the doorstep in recent years that they seem to be in trouble now that the supply of up-and-coming talent is a bit disappointing. Fortunately, the partnership with Honda now offers an alternative.
In Formula 2, Yuki Tsunoda, a descendant of the Honda family who now also drives for Red Bull, is doing very well. In a season where not one driver really stands out from the rest, he is now in fourth place in the championship with one victory and three podium finishes.

The foursome now driving for Red Bull in Formula 1 seems to have had its best time in its current composition. Especially Daniil Kvyat has to fear for his position now that Pierre Gasly is structurally faster than the Russian. Team boss Franz Tost of AlphaTauri expects to have Tsunoda under his care within the foreseeable future.
“Red Bull and Honda support Tsunoda because he is a fantastic driver,” he says to Motorsport “He is very talented, and has many qualities that he showed last year in Formla 3 and will show again this year”. He’s still improving his performance, he’s becoming more and more experienced and I expect to have him at Alphatauri sooner or later of course”.
