AlphaTauri retain Japanese driver Yuki Tsunoda for the 2023 Formula One season… despite a difficult second campaign having failed to score points in his last ten races

AlphaTauri have confirmed that Japanese driver Yuki Tsunoda will get a third year with the team as he has been kept on for the 2023 Formula One season. The 22-year-old joined the Red Bull sister team at the start of 2021 and has scored 43 points in that time, with a best race finish of fourth at last year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Since then though he has failed to score a point, with more experienced team-mate Pierre Gasly scoring 22 points this season in comparison to Tsunoda’s 11. The team though have struggled for pace under the new regulations and are currently eighth on 33 points – compared to last year which they scored 142 points and finished sixth.
