Alfa Romeo have launched the car they hope will start to transform their Formula 1 fortunes in the 2021 season.
The third car to be unveiled for the new F1 campaign which begins in March, Alfa Romeo’s C41 was launched in a dramatic unveiling in Warsaw featuring drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi.
Alfa Romeo slipped behind the midfield with a distant eighth-place finish last season but have used their two permitted development tokens on a new ‘nose’ and front suspension to find more performance.
“Hopefully we are better off than we were last year,” said Raikkonen, beginning his 19th season of Formula 1.
“We’ll do our best whenever we’ll end up to be.”
Alfa Romeo are one of only three teams to maintain their driver line-up from last year with the evergreen Raikkonen, 41, in tandem with Italy’s Giovinazzi for the third season in a row.
McLaren and AlphaTauri are the only other teams to reveal their new cars so far, with Red Bull next up on Tuesday.
