The Alfa Romeo Formula 1 team has unveiled its new C43, the last Sauber-built car to carry the name of the Italian manufacturer.

Describing the car as ‘lean and mean’ in a launch held jointly in Zurich and Sauber’s nearby headquarters in Hinwil, Alfa have ditched their red and white livery from previous years in favour of an ‘aggressive’ red and black look, with new title partner Stake prominent throughout.

“I really like our new livery,” said Valtteri Bottas, who again partners Zhou Guanyu in 2023. “I think it’s stunning, and a fine evolution from last year.”

The car will be shaken down in Barcelona this week before it hits the track at pre-season testing on February 23-25 in Bahrain, all live on Sky Sports F1. The season starts a week later with the Bahrain GP on March 5.

2023 marks the final season for the team as we know it, with Swiss-based Sauber – who have raced under the Alfa guise for the last four years – going it alone becoming the Audi works team in 2026.
