Contract extension with AlphaTauri for the next F1 season was unexpected for this year’s rookie Yuki Tsunoda.

Why it matters: Tsunoda has stayed at AlphaTauri for the 2022 campaign, despite numerous issues the Japanese has had.


  • Tsunoda believes that his incosistency could have made a negative impact on the team’s decision regarding his future.
  • He admits that the expecatitions at the start of the season were too high.

I’m really excited of course. The first half of the season was quite inconsistent and also from my side, I was a bit surprised I’d be staying next year so first of all thanks to the team, and really excited for this opportunity again for next year. And for this year, just learn as much as possible.
