Departure of Franz Tost amicable says Marko

Dr Helmut Marko says the departure as long-time Alpha Tauri team boss Franz Tost was “amicable”. “Franz Tost will step down from the role of team principal at the end of the 2023 season,” the team said in a statement. “Laurent Mekies will join Scuderia Alpha Tauri as its new team principal at a date to be confirmed.”. Some might assume that the changed situation could be related to rumours that Austrians Tost and Marko, appointments very much of the Dietrich Mateschitz era, were at odds with new Red Bull chief Oliver Mintzlaff. Marko, who turns 80 on Thursday, met with 48-year-old Mintzlaff at Red Bull CEO in Salzburg on Wednesday. “Tost will remain until the end of the year, after which he will transition to an advisory role,” Marko added.
