New Alfa Romeo has 'revolutionary' front wing

New Alfa Romeo has 'revolutionary' front wing

Raikkonen will kick off testing for Alfa Romeo at Barcelona on Monday, before his team-mate Antonio Giovinazzi gets his first taste of the vehicle on Tuesday. "I look forward to getting to know the auto better there". "[I'm] very happy actually".

It was already shaken down by Raikkonen at Fiorano last Thursday, with the vehicle decked out in a special "love" livery to mark Valentine's Day.

"The guys did the very good job over the winter". "The vehicle felt good and I was able to get a first impression of the auto we will be running this season".

Facebook ‘exploring additional measures’ to tackle anti-vaccination posts
As an outbreak of measles spreads across the U.S. , advertisements promoted by anti-vaccination organization have been targeting pregnant women on Facebook.

It was announced at the start of the month that the team would be rebranded as Alfa Romeo Racing for 2019, though its Sauber ownership and management remains in place. But after a positive first day of running, was the Finn starting to think of an achievable goal for his 2019 season? However by the end of the day he was one of only four drivers to cover more than 100 laps. "I'm not really surprised - any team expects to do good laps in the vehicle".

"I think I read it the same like everybody else", he said. "There is a lot of work to do to improve things but we hope to start well", he added. There's only a very limited amount of days that we can do testing so we need to put laps and learn from the auto. "We ran for a total of 33 laps and will use our data to establish how the new regulations will affect the behaviour of our auto".

But the new front-wing design also produces less downforce than those used past year, and teams have spent the winter trying to reduce the losses in overall downforce created by the rules.
