Alfa Romeo has launched its 2021 Formula 1 car, the C41, which it hopes will allow the team to join the frantic midfield battle this year after spending 2020 cut adrift in a group of three teams at the back. In this video Edd Straw looks at the changes the team has made, how it’s spent its permitted development tokens, why Alfa has followed-up last year’s C39 with the C41 name, and what the team needs from Ferrari to take a proper step forward
Gary Anderson's verdict on 'lost' Alfa Romeo's 2021 F1 car

  • Alfa has better Engines then Ferrari. Robert Kubica is the better driver. He drove the car to pole position in one race before. So it's not the car. It's it's drivers

  • Unfortunately, as an Alfa Romeo fan, I don’t think there will be a big changes in performance this year. I hope a little bit better position than last year, but nothing more. Now with newborn Stellantis group, ti will be interesting to see what they are going to do with this team. I hope, because the Ferrari doesn’t make a part of that group, they will wish to have a their own F1 Team and will make a step forward. I hope they’re not going to quit hte F1 experience to go to Formula E. if the Stellantis wants to take part in that championship, there is the Maserati, but Alfa Romeo, in my opinion, must remain in the F1 Championship.

  • While I am a McLaren fan, I have loved the Alfa Romeo colors on the car. It is the most attractive livery on the grid. Pity it has a Ferrari under the hood. That Ferrari engine is a hybrid between a boat anchor and rubber band power.

  • Alfa, HAAS and Astroll Martin will go through intense changes this season. Form leadership/ownership changes to new alliances or even a new unexpected PU supplier... *2021 will be a memorable season in terms of F1 changes, silly season, surprises, etc. As to racing... only RB or Alpine may surprise.*

  • I don’t know what’s wrong between English journalists and Antonio Giovinazzi. They simply don’t like him. I don’t think giovinazzi is the fastest guy in F1 but if you guys analyze his races you can see how the team fucked up his strategy almost in every race. So.. I won’t say inconsistent just because he finishes races behind Kimi.

  • They need better drivers. Kimi is way past his prime. He was past his prime even at Ferrari. I love the guy, but that's just a fact. And Italian Jesus seems to have moments of class, but they are so few and far in between. Very few,, and very far in between.. If they stay in 8th again this year, I honestly think they'd be better off just bringing in rookies for 2022 if they're still in F1.

On a different note, F1 wants to provide the best show for its fans...... Well, Kimi is a big party of that, he has captured the heart of many fans by simply being himself rather than the stylized behavior of most rookies. Kimi Forever!!

Givo last year never really impressed. Shame always liked this team they are good at punching above their weigh. But think thneed fresh drivers. There are plenty in the wigs that are good enough.
