The AlphaTauri Formula One team have announced Carl Friedrik as their official luggage supplier.

The leather and travel goods brand will release a limited edition carry-on suitcase in collaboration with the Faenza-based team.

“Scuderia AlphaTauri represents elegance and lifestyle in the Formula One paddock, that’s why a premium and fashionable brand like Carl Friedrik is a great fit for our team,” said Franz Tost, team principal of Scuderia AlphaTauri.

“We are delighted to welcome Carl Friedrik to the team, and we are looking forward to travel around the world with their bespoke carry-on luggage.” 

Niklas Oppermann, Carl Friedrik co-founder, added: “Having listened to [Formula One 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.”
