Alfa Romeo Racing, formerly Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team, unveiled their car just before the first day of the first session of pre-season winter testing in Barcelona on Tuesday.

The team’s 2019 challenger has been named the C38.

Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal Alfa Romeo Racing and CEO Sauber Motorsport, said: We are proud to present the Alfa Romeo Racing C38, a car which is the result of the important work of each of member of our team, at our factory in Switzerland as well as at the track. The livery brings out last year’s features in a stronger and more edgy way. I would like to thank everyone who has worked towards creating this car for their relentless enthusiasm for our team’s mission and our sport, and we look forward to continuing to make progress and fight for strong results in the upcoming championship.”

Former world champion and Finn Kimi Raikkonen, who has shifted from Ferrari this year, said: “I look forward to getting on track now and learning more about the C38 during the next two weeks of testing.”

The team’s second driver, Italian Antonio Giovinazzi, said: “It is my first own car in Formula One and it is something very special to me. I really look forward to jumping into the C38 for the first time this week.”
