Alfa Romeo’s 2020 Formula 1 car, the C39, has broken cover for the first time as the team conducts a shakedown test at the Fiorano circuit.

2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen began racking up milage on the new car out on track, which has been decked in a special one-off testing livery.

The Swiss-based outfit, now in its second season since taking over Sauber, will officially launch its challenger for this year on the morning of the first pre-season test in the Barcelona pitlane.

Raikkonen remains with Alfa for a second campaign, with Italian Antonio Giovinazzi completing the 2020 driver line-up.

Ex-Williams driver Robert Kubica joins Alfa as its reserve driver for this year, bringing along his personal backers PKN Orlen, which will appear both on the car and in the team’s title.

Alfa finished eighth in the 2019 standings in its first season as a fully-fledged constructor in F1 since 1985.
