New AlphaTauri CEO gives Ricciardo boost in race for 2024 race seat
AlphaTauri has yet to confirm its driver line-up for next year, with uncertainty surrounding Daniel Ricciardo and Yuki Tsunoda. Ricciardo’s injury has allowed Liam Lawson to enter the picture, impressing team advisor Helmut Marko. AlphaTauri’s team principal, Jody Bayer, believes in having a combination of an experienced driver and a young one to be competitive and foster learning. The team’s desire for an experienced driver is not surprising given their poor performance in recent years, finishing ninth in the constructors’ championship in 2022 and currently set to finish at the bottom in 2023.
