Alfa Romeo celebrates the start of the 2021 Formula One season by sending the Giulia GTA to the track with the drivers from Alfa Romeo's Formula One team.

27 Mar 2021 | International News : Bahrain

Alfa Romeo has sportsmanship and racing in its DNA. The Biscione brand - as Alfa Romeo is known in Italy - won the first Formula One Grand Prix in history, in 1950 at Silverstone, where Nino Farina triumphed aboard an Alfa Romeo Gran Premio Tipo 158 'Alfetta'.

The 2021 F1 World Championship kicks off on Sunday, 28 March 2021, with the Bahrain Grand Prix. Behind the wheel of the C41 will be the pair of Antonio Giovinazzi and Kimi Raikkonen, whose race suits feature the acronyms GTA and GTAm, to represent a project that draws its inspiration from the Giulia Gran Turismo Alleggerita of 1965, a car that racked up successes on circuits all over the world.

The Giulia GTA project has benefited greatly from the partnership with Sauber, using the Sauber Engineering know-how in the prototyping and development of carbon fibre components with a bold aerodynamic impact, the new front bumper, side skirts, diffuser, the GTA spoiler and the GTAm aerowing.

The two drivers have also actively contributed to the project development, having completed a testing session at the Balocco Proving Ground. Kimi and Antonio focused on the aerodynamics and handling, analysing in depth all the changes made to the car and giving feedback to the engineering team to complete its fine-tuning.
