AlphaTauri Fires Engineer After Slow Start to 2023
Franz Tost, the team boss of AlphaTauri, has expressed his renewed trust in his team’s engineers following the departure of a problematic figure. Tost openly criticized the engineers before the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, stating that he no longer trusted them due to unfulfilled promises made during the winter break.
During his remarks in Jeddah, Tost voiced his skepticism, saying, “The engineers tell me we make some good progress, but I don’t trust them anymore. I just want to see the lap time because this is the only thing that counts. Because during the winter months they [the engineers] told me, ‘the car is fantastic, [we] made big progress,’ then we came to Bahrain, and we are nowhere.”
