The Alfa Romeo Racing Orlen Formula One Team’s 2021 car, the Ferrari powered C41 chassis made its on track debut at the Barcelona Circuit Du Catalunya in Spain on Tuesday with test and reserve driver Robert Kubica behind the wheel.
Speaking following the action the Polish driver commented saying:
“It’s always a special moment to be the first to drive a new car. Today’s focus was on making sure everything worked as planned and to ensure all systems were functional, so performance was not an objective, but the thrill of driving a car like this isn’t diminished. The car felt good and I am looking forward to driving it once again later in the season.”
Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN and CEO Sauber Motorsport AG:
“Today’s work is a crucial step in our preparations for the season and I’m pleased to report the day went as planned. We were able to perform all the checks we set out to do and now we can focus on analysing these first bits of data and prepare for the next test in two weeks’ time.”
