Alfa Romeo “Most Amazing Team” in F1 Test – Motorsports

After the 2020 campaign, when Alfa Romeo duo Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi struggled to make an impression in the midfield battle, Swiss costumes were even more encouraged by the match in Bahrain.

New C41 showed Signs of a step forward from its predecessorAnd on the final day of the test, Raikkonen was fourth fastest. Raikkonen’s form stood out for Russell as Williams was trapped in the fight between Alfa Romeo and Haas behind the midfield this year.

“You looked very, very fast,” Russell said of the final day’s performance. “I have to give him credit. I need to scrutinize the data, but at the moment it looks like the most amazing team.

“I can’t be honest about where we are, but in terms of things, you looked very fast.”

Antonio Jobinati, who is heading for his third full season with Alfa Romeo, said he was bright about the team’s progress.

“I’m happy with the work done in Sakhir,” he told Motorsport.com. “I’m still testing, but I think the first impression of the car is still important.

“Despite the harsh wind and sand conditions on the first day, there were no particular problems. In fact, even in tricky conditions, the car was stable and I enjoyed driving.

“This is a natural project and I am happy with the preparatory work for the season.”

The F1 team has fought this season to regain the downforce lost due to aero rule changes, but Jobinati feels that the new Alfa Romeo is actually better than last year.

“The new regulations and new tires are aimed at slowing down performance, but I have to say I’ve seen a lot of progress,” he explained.

“Especially in the low speed section, the front of the car is responsive and generally gives a positive feel in all types of corners.

“The power unit has also improved. It quickly created a sensation, and this will definitely give us a hand to get closer to our rivals.”
