The renamed Alfa Romeo team, formerly Sauber, has been working hard over the winter to give new driver Kimi Raikkonen the tools to do the job. One thing you can say about Kimi is that when he gets in a car he will drive the wheels off it and say it as it is, which will make him a real asset to the team.
This is the second year of the team having a solid financial base to build from, and together with Kimi it is out to prove that it can mix with - if not lead - that midfield bunch throughout the season.
The car is very interesting in quite a few areas. The front wing is obviously the most visually distinctive in that the flaps sweep downwards as they go outwards towards the endplates. The flap elements still exist but they form a very flat angle of attack, meaning that they won't produce much downforce in this area. But it also means there won't be as much of a change on that downforce production when the front wheels' angles change when steering.
