Franz Tost, Team Principal of Scuderia AlphaTauri said:
Scuderia AlphaTauri represents elegance and lifestyle in the Formula One paddock. That’s why a premium and fashionable brand like Cark Friedrik is an excellent fit for our team. We are delighted to welcome Carl Friedrik to the team and look forward to travelling around the world with their bespoke carry-on luggage.
Niklas Oppermann, Carl Friedrik Co-Founder, commented:
Having listened to (F1 driver) Pierre Gasly, it’s clear how intense the Formula One travel schedule is. The Scuderia AlphaTauri team requires high-performance luggage to ease the burden of near-constant travel. In our limited-edition carry-on, they will find a suitcase with the right combination of durability, functionality, and style to keep up with the extensive travel programme of the sport.
Pierre Gasly, Driver, Scuderia AlphaTauri
I can’t explain how many hours I spend in airports, aeroplanes, and cars. You need practicality in the things you carry when you travel. I want to race; what do I need to do to be a Formula 1 world champion?
