Dark Alfa red all over with a cloverleaf please, to get us feeling it's an Alfa Romeo rather than half a Sauber.

Remember reading somewhere that the new car will be a completely new concept instead of an evolution of the C38. Very interesting considering how pretty much everyone else is going for the latter approach.

 

Hopefully that is the actual livery, looks mean.

Shouldn't expect good cars from the midfield. Eveyone's saving for the 2021 dev race.

Like the testing livery though.

I don't get the praise for this livery. It's an ugly shade of grey with an ugly texture, bleh.

The team has ALWAYS had ugly liverys so this imo is a step up

Surprising amount of Orlen branding considering Kubica is just a test driver.

They are a title sponsor. Not just because of Kubica as they want to expand their international presence.

Great looking livery in my opinion think it looks great, shame the real livery is most likely gonna be the same as last years which would be a shame as it is quite a boring livery, with the Alfa Romeo branding would expect a better one but this testing livery is lovely.

In terms of the car although the livery is probably hiding it quite well, it dosent look to much different to last year and in comparison to the cars already launched doesn't look as tightly packaged and looks a bit fat in comparison.

Well.. Kimi's overall is all black. Maybe they will change livery as well.

Nothing interesting is to my uneducated eyes. Probably a proper midfield team again..well it would be unfair to expect more. I didn't like the livery. I am happy it only test special.

Version 2.0 of last years car really, just the airbox has changed to Ferrari style and a slightly tighter engine cover. Hopefully Kimi stays for 2021, cant expect much with this car.

Reminds me of McLaren one year. One of the anonymous years, can’t remember which one. JB was driving.

FW towards the end plates is really extreme compared to the other launch cars we've seen so far.

Seriously is.  People saw the Ferrari FW last year and wondered how it could possibly create enough downforce, but this is taking it to a whole new level.

Hard to see the differenses due to test livery, but looks ok, not radically different but lets see it with actual livery next week.

It has a heart on the engine cover! How can it be ugly!?

We need comparative pictures with c 38, c'mon people get on it!   :p On first look, it looks different enough, air intake, nose, front wing...

Sidepods look one of the most undeveloped in the entire grid.

Does it really matter though? We can judge the size of the sidepods and complexity of bargeboards, but realistically in the end the biggest question will again be whether the car can work the tyres right or not.

Exactly. Hopefully overall this year they have a car that can work the tyres better in different conditions and compounds as well as otherwise performs better around different tracks.

Also last year they dropped out of development somewhat, hopefully this season they can stay more competitive in the midfield to the end of the season.

Indeed, biggest performance gains can be achieved with tyre understanding.

Wow that side by side is impressive. That’s a huge update, cleaner and way more detailed everywhere. The floor concept seems completely reworked. Williams may have a hard catching them up. Wonder if then can leap McLaren to 5-6.
