Alfa Romeo Racing will present its new F1 car for 2021 at the end of next month in Poland, a key location of their title sponsor Orlen, and the name of the new car does not continue on its predecessor from 2020.
The new C41 will be unveiled on February 22 in the Polish capital Warsaw and the team is still to announce the exact time and location of the event.
Last year’s Alfa Romeo was called the C39, but the team opted for the C41 name for this season to be in line with the current 2021 season.
Alfa was the first to announce the launch date of their new car, and in the coming weeks we can expect the other teams to confirm their launch dates.
Due to the postponement of the Australian GP for the November date, the first race of the season will be run in Bahrain from March 26 to 28 while pre-season testing starts on March 12 on the same track and will last only three days.
Alfa Romeo retains the same drivers as last year and will be driven by 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi while Robert Kubica remains the test and development driver that recently confirmed his appearance at the 24h Daytona with HighClassRacing team.
The team finished eighth in the 2020 F1 constructors’ championship with eight points, with only Haas (3) and Williams (0) behind them.
A date for the calendar. 👀🔜
