Why AlphaTauri turned down ‘free’ Red Bull parts for its 2021 F1 car

AlphaTauri is the second team to launch its 2021 car, with the AT02 looking to build on a strong 2020 season where the Italian outfit won a race with Pierre Gasly. In this video we take a close look at the new design, looking at the changes the team has made, and why it decided against taking more parts from Red Bull that it was entitled to do without using up its permitted development tokens. We also explain why the car is much more than just a copy of what ‘big brother’ Red Bull Racing produced last year, and how AlphaTauri is going in its own direction with developments
What's different on AlphaTauri's 2021 F1 car

I really want Alpha to move into top 4 teams honestly. It’s about time. And with RedBull making engines should be perfect for them.

I really like the alpha tauri livery, the toro rosso livery was nice but it just felt weird next to the iconic red bull livery. The rebrand did a lot to shift the brand from B team to sister team. It also helps that they've produced two stunning but different liveries in 2 years can't wait to see what they do with it next year

Well the car just qualified 5th for Bahrain GP with Pierre Gasly onboard. So someone has done a good job on that car.

Love the livery, especially the wheels! So cool... I see them making a real run at 4th though 5th is most likely their final resting spot come the final checkered flag. If the Prancing Pony gets its act together they will knock McClaren off the podium thus cementing our spot in 5th. If not, it's game on!!

So they didnt turn down Red Bull parts .. they just took front end bits instead of rear. So a fair bit misleading right from the start

Matte finish destroys even the nicest color design. FIA should set a minimum paint thickness so that all teams use the final gloss paint layer as they did until a couple of years ago.

Team certainly has improved. From the 2nd in Brazil and win in Monza. But for years now their overall results show they are below the midfield teams. Can't they put a complete season together first? Before being considered not the B team or top of the mid field.

I love the livery. Tbh, I haven't felt compelled by Formula 1 since 2013. I still don't find the aesthetics of the halo pleasing. I could careless about the safety advances. If safety was truly paramount drivers would perform remotely...

"Though Alpha Tauri has also taken the 2020 specification Red Bull power steering system which is possible without any token spent thanks to the rules allowing those running non-listed parts supplied by other teams to upgrade to 2020 specification if they ran year old parts the previous season." I didn't understand a bit of this...why you always speak so complicated? Not all your audience is PhD in English Literature..make it more concise please.

The front end looks lean. In a good way. If the front end stays more or less the same after testing, then that'll mean that they are aiming to reap the benefits seen over at Racing Point. That rear body work makes no sense though.

Is it so they keep their car easy to drive for their noob drivers? Wasn't the problem with the redbull an unstable rear end? Looks who's driving? My guess would be that red bulls brand etc would be better served with young drivers further up the midfield with a ceiling rather than 4 edgy unleashed cars not being fully driven.

To me this car looks very much more Ferrari in concept than Red Bull. The car just overall seems lower rake than previous designs, and I wonder if that is a nod towards the 2022 regulations. Given all that, and the known issues Red Bull had with their rear instability, what is the case for them using the parts?
