In 2020, the scuderia from Faenza changes its name from Toro Rosso to AlphaTauri.
Scuderia Toro Rosso was born in 2005 following their acquisition of Team Minardi, team created by Giancarlo Minardi in Faenza. The following year began participating in the Formula 1 World Championship. At the foundation of the team is the desire to create a space to cultivate the talented young drivers emerging from Red Bull Junior Driver Program.
From its conception, the team has operated as a satellite of Red Bull Racing, relying on Red Bull Technology for the continual development of their racecars. However, since 2010, thanks to the intense expansion program that has impacted their structures in Romagna and the UK, Scuderia AlphaTauri operates with complete autonomy in its factory on Via Boaria in Faenza. It is where the entire process of design and production of the single-seater takes place.
To date, Sebastian Vettel is the only drive who has managed to take Scuderia Toro Rosso to the top of the podium. He made his mark by winning the Italian Gran Prix of 2008 in Monza and earning the pole position on the same occasion. In Monza again, during Italian GP 2020, Pierre Gasly manages to drive in front of everyone, bringing a victory to Faenza team after many years.
