Franz Tost: Alpha Tauri team principal to be replaced by Ferrari’s Laurent Mekies

Franz Tost will be replaced at the end of this season as team principal of Red Bull’s Alpha Tauri team by Ferrari sporting director Laurent Mekies. Peter Bayer, previously F1 executive director and secretary general for motorsport at governing body the FIA, will become the team’s chief executive. Despite giving a date for the Austrian’s departure, Alpha Tauri did not specify the dates that either Mekies or Bayer would start in their new roles. Tost, a former racing driver, said it was time for him to hand over his day-to-day role at the team. Bayer said it was a “great privilege” to take on his new role at Alpha Tauri.
