Alfa Romeo have launched the car they hope will start to transform their Formula 1 fortunes in the 2021 season. The third challenger to be unveiled for the new F1 campaign which begins in March, Alfa Romeo’s C41 was launched in a dramatic unveiling in Warsaw’s Grand Theatre featuring drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi.
“Hopefully we are better off than we were last year,” said 2007 champion Raikkonen. “We’ll do our best whenever we’ll end up to be.”
“I think the philosophy upon which the team is based remains the same – we have to do a better job tomorrow than we are doing today,” said team boss Frederic Vasseur. “We finished last season in P8, so we have to target a better result in 2021. To do so, we have to keep improving in each department, trackside and back at HQ. Every team on the grid has very high expectations right now: all the teams expect to do a good job in the winter and to be in a good position for the first race, but soon it will be the time for everyone to show their cards.”
