The final Formula 1 car bearing the Alfa Romeo name will be unveiled on Tuesday, March 7, the team announced.
Alfa Romeo, whose F1 team is powered by Sauber, announced last year that 2023 would be their last season competing in the sport. The team will change names next year and compete as an Audi factory team from 2026, while introducing a series of new technical regulations.
The last Sauber car to carry the Alfa Romeo brand, the C43, will be unveiled on Tuesday, February 7, Alfa Romeo confirmed in a post on social media.
The team will once again field the driver line-up of veteran Valtteri Bottas and his younger teammate Zhou Guanyu, who joined Alfa Romeo at the start of last season.
Alfa Romeo battled hard with Aston Martin in the final rounds of last season but successfully beat their rivals to sixth place in the Constructors’ Championship. While the two teams finished the season level on points, Alfa Romeo beat Aston Martin in the shootout with Bottas taking fifth place at Imola.
Frédéric Vasseur replaces Mattia Binotto at Ferrari after he left Alfa Romeo at the end of last season. Sauber has hired Andreas Seidl from McLaren to serve as team executive.
Alfa Romeo has a ninth Formula 1 team to confirm the unveiling date for their 2023 car. Only Haas has yet to reveal when they will reveal their new car to the world.
