AlphaTauri Team Profile
What a year 2019 was for Toro Rosso, now known as AlphaTauri, as the team trebled its podium tally with both drivers celebrating in a spray of champagne.
Back in 2006, Formula 1 saw the first STR line up on the grid. The team, previously Paul Stoddart's Minardi, had been bought as Red Bull Racing's junior team, a place where they could train drivers away from the pressure before promoting them to the senior team.
The philosophy behind Toro Rosso has meant that the Formula 1 team has always been in the lower half of the pack, a training ground more than a place to get the results.
That, though, didn't stop Sebastian Vettel.
Back in 2008 the German made history as he made the most of the conditions at a wet Monza circuit, taking the team's first-ever pole position. A day later he did the unthinkable as he followed that up with the race win, Toro Rosso's first. And to date also the team's last.
The team has, however, added podiums since then, both coming in 2019.
Daniil Kvyat, returning to Toro Rosso after being axed from the programme after the 2017 season, was third in a chaotic German GP while Pierre Gasly, demoted to Toro Rosso after failing to make the grade at Red Bull, was second in Brazil.
Their efforts meant Toro Rosso, running a Honda engine for the second year in succession, finished the championship in sixth place. That matched their best previous performance from Vettel's race-winning 2008 season.
Both Kvyat and Gasly will remain at the Faenza-based team in 2020, however, they won't be racing for Toro Rosso. Instead they will run under the AlphaTauri banner.
Team owner Dietrich Mateschitz has opted to link the team to Red Bull's fashion brand.
