C41, the new Alfa Romeo model for formula 1 | Digital Trends Spanish
The C41 is the new Alfa Romero model, which comes hand in hand with Orlen, a company dedicated to fuels and energy. The C41 replaces the 2020 season car, the C39.
Although the decoration is new, the red and white tones characteristic of Alfa Romeo are preserved and, being a sports car of the Italian brand, you can see a four-leaf clover, symbol of the sporting essence of this team.
Due to the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the C41 retains components of the previous model, but it is on the front where they have focused to make variations (here they used their development chips). There were also some changes to the car floor and diffuser areas.
As in previous years, the Prancing Horse firm is in charge of moving the C41, since the engine is Ferrari. With this alliance, better results will be sought, all with a view to moving up in places with respect to the position achieved last season.
