Scuderia AlphaTauri is a renowned Italian Formula One racing team and constructor, owned by Austrian beverage company Red Bull. The constructor was renamed for the 2020 Formula One World Championship from “Toro Rosso” to “AlphaTauri” in order to promote the AlphaTauri fashion brand. According to Franz Tost and Helmut Marko, Scuderia AlphaTauri is no longer the junior team but the sister team to Red Bull Racing. The team’s involvement in Formula One can be traced back to the 1985 season when they first competed as Minardi.

In September 2019, Toro Rosso announced their intention to change their naming rights for the 2020 championship. It was announced on 1 December 2019 that the team had selected “AlphaTauri” as their new moniker to promote parent company Red Bull’s fashion label of the same name by purchasing Toro Rosso’s naming rights. Thus, they became Scuderia AlphaTauri and retired the Scuderia Toro Rosso moniker after fourteen years. With Red Bull GmbH owning the team since the 2006 season, Scuderia AlphaTauri has established itself as a formidable force in the world of Formula One racing.
