Get the attention of the outside world! F1’s first “post-00” driver is about to hit the road
Chinanews.com.cn before February 20th , F1 Toro Rosso released the new car AT02 for the 2021 season. They are the second team to release a new car after McLaren. In the new season, the driver lineup of the Toro Rosso is the main driver Pierre Gasly and the first “post-00” driver Kakuda Yuyi in F1 history.
As F1’s first “post-00” driver, Japanese driver Yuyi Kakuda’s performance in the new season is expected by many fans. Last season, Kakuda Yuki fought in F2 and won 3 championships, 4 pole positions and 7 podiums. He won the third place in his rookie season.
In December last year, the Toro Rosso announced that Yuyi Kakuda would officially join the team next season. The team attaches great importance to his preparations and has arranged for him to drive an old car for track tests to familiarize himself with the driving feeling of F1 cars.
At present, Gallis will be the main driver of the Toro Rosso next season. He said: “I am ready to take up the role of team leader. At the same time, Kakuda Yuki is also a very fast driver, and he will also push the team forward.”
“He (Gasley) is an incredible genius. I am very happy to learn from him this year, and I have seen his ability to bring the team together.” (End)
