F1: Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN C42 completes successful shakedown

The Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN 2022 contender, the C42, completed a successful shakedown at Fiorano Circuit today.

The C42, in a special camouflage livery, took to the track for the first time just after 11am to perform system checks. In a distinctly wintry weather, with rain lashing down on the track, Valtteri Bottas completed the first outing of the car under the gaze of Team Principal, Frédéric Vasseur; Technical Director, Jan Monchaux; and team-mate, Guanyu Zhou.

With all preliminary tests completed, the team will now prepare for the first testing session of the season, to be held in Barcelona on February 23-25, ahead of the official team launch on February 27.

It is interesting that the Alfa Romeo has the same slotted vents on top of the sidepods as the Aston Martin, which until now was the only car designed that way.
