    Team Alfa Romeo don’t need a simulator, they need the drink.

    I hope they are able to compete with AlphaTauri for the 7th place.
    I say this because McLaren, Aston, Ferrari, and Alpine would be busy fighting amongst themselves!

    Not quite sure how Leclerc makes such a big impact. They were also 8th in the standings in 2018 when Leclerc was around, and with lesser points compared to 2019. They went backwards mid 2019, lack of development most likely the cause. 2020 downfall was primarily due to Alfa's unwilling participation in Ferrari's master🅱️lan

    I honestly feel there most significant problem in 2020 was the lack of power from the Ferrari engine more then anything else! Hopefully the new power unit gives them what they need!

    If Ferrari is able to figure out that powertrain, then the chassis, that was originally designed for more power, which the illegal engine was providing, should be a better balanced package. I imagine with the engine freeze, Ferrari pumped alot of moola on it in the off season. So it has yet to be a truly tested design. That being said, the entire midfield are going to be very strong and consistent. Everyone , save for McLaren with the new package, are going to be optimized. Should be an entertaining season. Great driver match ups too.

    I don’t understand why 8th is a disappointing result for Sauber/Alfa Romeo. That team has been finishing in 8th for the last three years, and they were worse before that.

    Alfa scored more points in 2019 than when Charles was there in 2018. The decline was well after Charles left. More like second half of 2019.

    If Ferrari can´t develop their car becauce they spent their tokens on the engine. Besideds aerodynamic changes offcurse. I think Alfa Romeo have a chance to catch upp to them.

      it wasn't his development, it was his work ethic and fresh take and passion to improve. Which current Kimi doesn't have. Also drivers don't have as much input into car development as some might think.

    Honestly I think that for Mercedes, red bull, McLaren, Alpha Tauri, Alfa Romeo and Haas should just be to stay were they are now. Realistically they are not going to get higher than they are now but to get that same result but more convincingly or closer to the team ahead should be the goal

      Sounds like an entertaining launch to me! But controversially I don't like the livery too much. I kind of like it but it's not a revolutionary change, just a neat upgrade. Personally, I rate the Alpha Tauri livery more, the old one was quite the looker but I felt the white was a tad bit too dominant, which they fixed
