Japan will once again have a Formula 1 racer next year. 20-year-old Red Bull junior Yuki Tsunoda will race for the AlphaTauri team in the 2021 season and will become a new teammate of Pierre Gasly. Young Tsunoda finished this year's Formula 2 season in third place, behind Mick Schumacher and Callum Ilott, gaining the necessary points for a super license. With this, the Japanese managed to advance from Formula 4 to Formula 1 in just two years. Franz Tost, head of AlphaTauri, said: "Red Bull has been watching his career all the time and we are sure he is a great reinforcement for our team.

One of the doubts about the promotion of Yuki Tsunoda, a Formula 2 racer who finished third this season and enjoys Honda support, to the top class of motorsport, was whether he would get enough points for a super license. But the Japanese won Sakhir’s main race and was second in the sprint race today, giving me a ticket to a Formula 1 race. “I think the chances are very slim,” Kwiat said when asked if his sixth place was at qualifications increased hopes that he would retain the seat of AlphaTauri on Pierre Gasly. "I came to terms with that some time ago. There's only one seat left in Formula One and Red Bull has to promote their young racers. That's the last I've heard so far.
