Podcast: Will Alfa graduate from ‘Class C’ this season?

Feb 22 2021

We ask if Alfa Romeo can emerge from its 2020 ‘Class C’ struggles and latch onto Formula 1’s midfield group in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast.

Gary Anderson and Mark Hughes join Edd Straw to take a close look at the newly-launched Alfa Romeo C41 and discuss its prospects of doing better than its now-traditional eighth place in the constructors’ championship.

The reasons for the change in nose design, and why it hasn’t gone as far as some rivals, are delved into, with Anderson explaining the subtleties of making the aero at the front end of the car work.

There’s also a look at the team’s driver line-up of Antonio Giovinazzi and Kimi Raikkonen, as well as the potential impact of its late adoption of the driver-in-loop simulator.

This is the latest in our series of F1 car launch podcasts, with episodes dedicated to McLaren and AlphaTauri also available.

The Race F1 Podcast is released at least once a week and available free to subscribe to from all good podcast suppliers, including Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
