AlphaTauri has become the fourth Formula 1 team to run its 2020 car on track so far having embarked on a shakedown test at Misano in Italy.

The former Toro Rosso team launched its new look in Austria on Friday night, before giving its AT01 chassis an initial outing in Italy. A modified 2019 car had been used for the unveiling event.

Daniil Kvyat began the running at the shakedown.

Red Bull had been the first team to get a 2020 on track with a run at Silverstone on Wednesday. Mercedes and Alfa Romeo followed suit at Silverstone and Fiorano respectively on Friday.

No other teams have so far publicised undertaking shakedown runs.

Renault, Racing Point and Williams are now the only teams that have not revealed their 2020 designs at either events or via online pictures.

Racing Point will follow Renault’s example and hold a season launch on Monday without the new car present, while Williams will show its design digitally on Monday.

Pre-season testing begins at Barcelona next Wednesday.
