First images of 2019 Alfa Romeo car appear online

The first images of the 2019 Alfa Romeo Formula 1 car have appeared online as the team conducts a shakedown at Fiorano.

The Italian manufacturer returns to F1 as a full-time manufacturer, taking over the Sauber outfit. Last year, it acted as the Hinwil outfit's title sponsor, which saw the team change up its livery to Alfa's traditional red and white colours.

This year, it has brought in 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen, who spent the last five years racing at Ferrari. The Finn will be joined by Italian Antonio Giovinazzi who has two Grand Prix starts to his name, having raced for Sauber at the opening two races of the 2017 season.

The new Alfa Romeo car appears to have a uniquely designed front wing. Rumours from Italy previously stated that the new car would have a radical and distinctive design as it targets to climb up F1's competitive ladder.

Last year, Sauber started the year towards the back of the field, but successfully developed the car throughout the season to end up as arguably the fourth strongest team.

Alfa Romeo will formally launch the car in the Barcelona pitlane next Monday, 40 minutes before the first green flag of pre-season testing is waved.

    I hope that this is only a test livery.

  • Here I was, hoping they'd retain last year's candy morello and white livery, and this might be what we get. Now I like winered, second favourite colour to sapphire, but this looks kinda meh. Elegant yes, , but meh.

      I think it's a test livery, at least I hope so. But check out that front wing!

    • Kinda remind me of Carey's moustache... Ya don't think this is Carey's way to tell people like "yeah, Im owning this here now, deal with it". He is showing his dominion over F1 by giving the cars some 'stache.

    • After looking at some pics elsewhere I suspect it might be a test livery. Closeups revealed shamrocks and hearts, possibly to correlate with Valentines Day release.

  • I like it. Nice to see some originality and variation from the flat paint schemes. Also like how the Mercs also have some patterns thrown in.
