How the last Sauber-built Alfa offers F1 2023 evolution clues

Alfa Romeo has become the first Formula 1 team to reveal a new car for 2023, in addition to a fresh livery. This offered a first look at some of the understated changes produced by the revised regulations, along with points of convergence in the second year of the ground effect rules

Let’s consider Alfa Romeo’s unveiling of its C43 Formula 1 car the true kick-off to 2023’s launch season, shall we? Haas and Williams were at least up-front with their livery launches, but certain others opted for a nebulous “season launch” only to expose last year’s car with the same paint job.

Alfa’s got a new car and a new livery. The Alfa Romeo name may subside from the grid for next season as Audi’s journey with Sauber continues to escalate, and so this writer was hoping for the most on-brand livery yet after finally getting good last season. Thankfully, it’s delivered on that front, and committing to the metallic red with a carbon black scheme looks effortlessly classy. But we’re not here to talk about cosmetic features, or new title sponsorship deals. There’s more at Stake than that.
