Just 30 minutes before the cars took to the track for testing, Alfa Romeo officially presented its 2019 contender, the C38.

"We are proud to present the Alfa Romeo Racing C38," said team boss, Frederic Vasseur, "a car which is the result of the important work of each of member of our team, at our factory in Switzerland as well as at the track.

"The livery brings out last year's features in a stronger and more edgy way," he continued. "We are proud to display the logos of our partners, who have joined us in the scope of the expansion of our commercial activities, on these cars. I would like to thank everyone who has worked towards creating this car for their relentless enthusiasm for our team's mission and our sport, and we look forward to continuing to make progress and fight for strong results in the upcoming championship."

"Since joining the team last year, I have seen progressive growth on all fronts," added technical director, Simone Resta, "and am very pleased to see the result of the hard work completed over the course of this winter, our 2019 Formula One contender, the new Alfa Romeo Racing C38. All departments have been collaborating well and the whole team has been pushing in the same direction.

"We have set ambitious targets for this season which brings along a significant change in regulations - mainly from an aerodynamic point of view. We have a great driver line-up and look forward to hearing their feedback in the next two weeks of testing ahead of the first Grand Prix in Melbourne."

"The car looks great," said Kimi Raikkonen. "The livery is nice. A lot of partners have joined to support this team which is a positive, and we thank them for believing in us. I look forward to getting on track now and learning more about the C38 during the next two weeks of testing."

"I think it is a beautiful car," added teammate Antonio Giovinazzi, "the design of the livery is great, very clean, and I like the colours a lot. It is my first own car in Formula One and it is something very special to me. We have many great sponsors who support us and we are very thankful for their confidence in our team. I really look forward to jumping into the C38 for the first time this week."

"What on earth have they done to the front wing? Was the one they ran last week deemed not good after that short run? Or was it just simple not allowed by the rules? I would very much appreciate some insight please."
