The 2019 Alfa Romeo Formula One livery has been revealed in the Formula One pitlane at Barcelona today.

With pre-season testing beginning this morning at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Alfa Romeo have revealed their new 2019 Formula One challenger to the world media, giving first sight of the new colour scheme the former Sauber team will be running in the year ahead.

The new car already made its track debut last week, running in a special Valentines Day livery during a shakedown session at the Italian Fiorano circuit, however this morning is the first time the official team livery for the season ahead has been seen.

Kimi Räikkönen will perform driving duties today for the squad, before handing over to new team mate Giovinazzi on Tuesday.

Is it a swiss or italian team? Why they keep the Switzerland logos on the rear wing?

Well the team are based around the remnants of the Sauber squad. So everything is still based in Switzerland.

The team is still Swiss. It's just racing under the branding of Alfa Romeo now.

Nice livery though. Would maybe like to see some more of the red and I wish on some cars they would make the pinstripes heavier and more bold but apart from that, very nice.

"The Sauber name will disappear from the Formula One grid this season after the Swiss-based team announced on Friday it had been renamed Alfa Romeo Racing as part of an extended sponsorship deal."

And the statistics (points, podiums, victories...) will they belong to Sauber or Alfa Romeo?
Strange situation, reminds me of the BMW period...

should be Alfa since officially the Sauber marquee has closed shop, at least in formula one. it's really weird considering they used to be a mercedes spin off, a lot of stuff happens in more than a dozen years ...

and: gone is that weird front wing from the testing day, poor little thing, couldn't survive in fresh air ...

edit. if i see the footage of kimi stuck in the gravel on his first lap today correctly, the tiny wing was in barca as well, or is it just a perspective issue?

Please try and explain that one.
Well I used "imo", people are free to disagree, but white is a non-colour to me. Just like I don't understand how people can drive in white cars.

About the profile pic, it's mostly the stance of the car over the kerbs why I use it, not the scheme which is anything but nice imo.
