Baku, September 22, AZERTAC
Yuki Tsunoda will remain in Formula One with AlphaTauri for another year, the Italian team has confirmed, according to ESPN.
Tsunoda, who is a part of the Red Bull young driver programme and backed by engine supplier Honda, is currently in his second season at AlphaTauri. His future in F1 beyond the end of the season had been questioned earlier this year, but he has looked locked on for a contract extension at AlphaTauri for several weeks.
"I want to say a huge thank you to Red Bull, Honda and Scuderia AlphaTauri for continuing to give me the opportunity to drive in F1," Tsunoda said. "Having moved to Italy last year, to be closer to the factory, I really feel part of the team and am glad that I get to carry on racing with them in 2023.
"Of course, our 2022 season isn't over yet and we're still pushing hard in the midfield battle, so I'm fully focused on finishing it on a high and then we will look forward to next year."
