Alfa Romeo Valentine’s Livery
Love is in the air for Alfa Romeo (Sauber) who unveiled their special Valentine’s Day livery for a filming day in Italy with none other than Kimi Raikkonen who announced his shock move from Ferrari last year.
As you’ll be able to see in the images further below, the livery is black and red with little hearts being featured. It hasn’t been confirmed but it appears that the livery is a special edition just for Valentine’s Day – a nice effort from the team to embrace and celebrate the day.
Many fans are expressing their wish on social media for Alfa Romeo to keep the livery for the 2019 season….
This is the first glimpse of the Alfa Romeo as the car won’t officially be unveiled until the morning of winter testing so there’s still time for tweaks and edits here and there.
The driver lineup for the 2019 Formula 1 season is Kimi Raikkonen, who began his career with the team back in 2001, driving alongside Antonio Giovinazzi.
Here’s what both drivers had to say about the car and upcoming season.
Kimi Raikkonen: “We had a good session on track – the car felt good and I was able to get a first impression of the car that we will be running this season. I think we still have to work on the last few details and head to Barcelona for two weeks for testing and I’m looking forward to going there and getting to know the car better.”
Antonio Giovinazzo: “In the team, you can feel the motivation is very high and I’m very excited to be a part of it. We all are – the car is beautiful and I hope it goes very fast. The team have been working throughout the winter and the evolution is very high – from the first GP in Australia to the last in Abu Dhabi, we want to fight for higher points and we went from last place to being able to fight for third and fourth….”
