After a frustrating 2020 the team will be hoping that the C41 can close the gap to the midfield and pull away from the back of the grid. There are still several questions hanging over Alfa Romeo. Will this be Kimi Raikkonen's last season in F1? And can Antonio Giovinazzi really cut it?
The team launched their 2021 challenger, the C41 in Warsaw, Poland. Accompanying the unveiling was a piano and dance performance at the start og the show. You can check the car out below!
Where is the C40?
With the C41, Alfa Romeo, perhaps with the help of some extra horsepower from Ferrari, will be looking to finish in the points more often. At first glance this is a strange name, as last year's car was designated C39. Why has the team, who have been using this numbering system since their entry into Formula 1, skipped a number?
It is a direct consequence of the coronavirus crisis. The C40 does exist. This is the car that is being developed for the new 2022 regulations. As this project was already underway before the introduction of the new regulations was postponed for a year, we will see the C41 on the track before the C40.
