New AlphaTauri CEO gives Ricciardo boost in race for 2024 seat
The driver line-up for AlphaTauri next year is still uncertain. Although it seemed like Ricciardo and Yuki Tsunoda were guaranteed seats for 2024, Ricciardo’s injury has given Liam Lawson an opportunity to impress. AlphaTauri’s team principal, Jan Bayer, believes that having a mix of an experienced driver and a young driver is crucial for competitiveness. The experienced driver can help set up the car and provide valuable feedback, while the young driver can learn from them. AlphaTauri’s desire for an experienced driver is understandable considering their poor form in recent years. Currently, they are on track to finish last in the standings for the 2023 season.
