Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN unveils the new C41
- The new C41 has been unveiled by the Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN team in Warsaw
- The partnership between Alfa Romeo and Sauber Motorsport goes far beyond racing
A spectacular ceremony in the impressive setting of the Grand Theatre, in Poland’s capital city, saw the attendance of a limited number of senior team personnel — with media, fans and employees being invited to watch virtually in respect of the local Covid regulations.
Team drivers, Kimi Räikkönen and Antonio Giovinazzi, and reserve driver, Robert Kubica, entered the stage with the C41, in a striking new livery.
Designed by the Alfa Romeo Centro Stile, it now features the now traditional red and white colours of the team. The car, designed under the coordination of Technical Director, Jan Monchaux, represents an evolution of the C39 that competed in the 2020 season. Owing to the restrictions imposed by the regulations, the car carries over many of the components of its predecessor, while still striking with its renewed appearance, in particular in regard to the nose cone, an area on which the team chose to focus its development. Under the bodywork, a new Ferrari engine lies in wait, ready to roar in less than a week, when the team embarks on a new season with the shakedown of the C41 in Barcelona on Friday.
The Alfa Romeo logo is flanked by the Quadrifoglio — four-leaf clover — traditionally associated with Alfa Romeo racing, and the logo of Autodelta, the brand’s legendary racing team.
