Cars News

The new Alfa Romeo Racing that will race in the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship was presented. The ceremony took place in the Grand Theater in Warsaw where drivers Antonio Giovinazzi and Kimi Raikkonen, together with test driver Robert Kubica, lifted the veil from the C41 produced in Hinvil, in Switzerland, in the Sauber factories. The car has been modified above all in the front, in which a narrower nose stands out according to a trend prevailing in F1 under development restrictions compared to 2020 (only Ferrari and Haas have invested in the rear). The other important novelty will be the Ferrari engine, redone after the disappointing performances in the last championship.

The driver line-up has been reconfirmed: Giovinazzi, 27, is the only driver in F1, while the Finn Raikkonen, with his 41 years, is the oldest on the track. The goal is to improve compared to last season, which ended with eighth place ahead of Haas and Williams without ever finishing in the race beyond ninth position. The name presents a leap from the previous C39. The C40 is the ground-effect single-seater whose introduction was postponed to 2022 when the project had already begun.

The Alfa Romeo C41 will hit the track on March 12 in Sakhir, Bahrain, for a three-day test together with the other teams, and then it will be at the start of the first Grand Prix on March 28, again on the Bahraini track.
