AlphaTauri is on the verge of a difficult decision when choosing its drivers for next season. The team stands on a tight balance, with the strong performance of young talent Liam Lawson and the decision to keep the experienced player Daniel Ricciardo together.
Lawson's Performance and Lack of Experience
Liam Lawson has been on the Formula 1 scene since the Dutch Grand Prix in August and attracted attention by scoring his first points in Singapore. Despite his lack of experience, the young pilot continued his fight with Tsunoda and will serve as a reserve pilot in the AlphaTauri team in the new season.
However, despite passing his teammate Tsunoda at the Japanese Grand Prix, Lawson was not smiling. "It's not satisfactory," Lawson said after the race. He expressed his feelings with his expressions. Stating that he is full of desire to become a first pilot, Lawson emphasized that he will continue to do his best to realize this desire.
AlphaTauri's Speed Problem
Despite passing Lawson's teammate in the last race, AlphaTauri missed opportunities to score points. Lawson attributed this situation to the team not being fast enough. Stating that the race was a race in which only the Alpine team was fast, Lawson said, “Unfortunately, this meant that we were left out of the points threshold. “I think we did the best we could.” he said.
Karar ZamThe moment is approaching
AlphaTauri is on the verge of a major decision on whether to continue with Lawson's young talent and desire or Ricciardo's experience. Both drivers are valuable to the team, but only the first driver has the seat. Formula 1 fans are eagerly waiting to see how the team will make this difficult decision.
