Italian Formula One racing team Alpha Tauri at Hangar 7 in Salzburg Austria

AlphaTauri, which was founded in 2016 and is headquartered in Salzburg, is Red Bull's in-house fashion brand.

Also on Friday, as well as Mercedes unveiling their new auto at a private test at Silverstone, the Alfa Romeo team ran their 2020 model for the first time in a one-off livery at Ferrari's Fiorano track.

The AT01 will be launched at 7PM UK time, and it will be the first chance for fans to see the auto that Daniil Kvyat and Pierre Gasly will drive.

The vehicle has a striking dark blue and white matte livery.

The 2020-spec AT01 will complete its first laps of an F1 circuit on Saturday, when it completes a filming day at the Misano circuit in Italy.

Kobe & Gianna Bryant Memorial Details, Ticket Information Released
Kobe and Gianna were among the nine people who were killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas on January 26. All ticket proceeds will be donated to the Mamba and Mambacita Sports Foundation.

AlphaTauri will continue to be powered by Honda, with the engine manufacturer pledging its future to Formula 1 - and both Red Bull teams - through at least 2021.

The team has changed its social media handles to mark the rebrand.

Red Bull renamed the team Toro Rosso, as a nod to its Italian heritage, and it became recognised as the drinks company's junior outfit.

Kvyat and Gasly will unite for their first season starting as teammates following Gasly's demotion from the senior Red Bull squad ahead of last year's Belgian Grand Prix.

Both drivers claimed the team a podium finish previous year - Kvyat in Germany and Gasly in Brazil.
