AlphaTauri team principal Franz Tost has said the Italian team are balancing their focus between their 2021 and 2022 cars.

With an aerodynamic overhaul on the horizon for 2022, the ten Formula 1 must walk a tight rope between directing time and resources between developing their cars for the 2021 season, while simultaneously preparing for the coming changes. AlphaTauri boss Franz Tost said his team are very much focused on next year even though the 2021 season hasn't started.

"The plans for 2022 are not just in the back of your mind, they are right at the front," Tost told Auto Motor und Sport.

"Now we have to see where we are in terms of performance with the current car. I hope that we can drive in the front midfield. Big developments during the season are not planned.

"At some point the technical director has to make a decision about which direction to take. But the main focus is already on the development of the 2022 car."

Tost also stated when the team will shift its focus to the 2022 car.

"There is still no fixed point at which we will stop developing the current car. But by June or July at the latest, we will certainly shift all resources to the 2022 car," Tost said.

The Austrian finally highlighted the importance of Red Bull's involvement and how his team stands to benefit from using the senior team's expertise.

"We can of course only work with Red Bull Technology within the regulations," Tost said.

"This means that we will also take over the transmission, the hydraulics and parts of the rear wheel suspension in 2022. I would like the entire rear part to come from Red Bull. It will be a little more difficult at the beginning with the new regulations, but over time it will go in that direction again."
