Alfa Romeo has become the latest team to set a launch date for its 2020 Formula 1 car.
The squad’s new package, the C39, will be unveiled in the pit lane at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya at 08:15 on February 19.
Pre-season testing will begin at the venue 45 minutes later.
Alfa Romeo finished eighth in last year’s Constructors’ Championship, mirroring Sauber’s 2018 classification, but struggled with the development of its C38, and lacked race pace after the summer break.
Kimi Raikkonen, the 2007 World Champion, and Ferrari-affiliated Antonio Giovinazzi have been retained as the driver line-up.
Ex-Williams racer Robert Kubica has returned to the squad as reserve driver, bringing with him PKN Orlen, which will act as Alfa Romeo’s title sponsor.
Kubica, who is set for some Friday running with Alfa Romeo, raced for the team under its BMW Sauber guise from 2006 to 2009, taking his and the squad’s sole win at the 2008 Canadian Grand Prix.
Ferrari is set to be the first team to unveil its 2020 Formula 1 car on February 11, with Renault (February 12), McLaren (February 13) and Mercedes and Alpha Tauri (February 14) following the same week.
Racing Point’s RP20 will be launched in Austria on February 17.
Red Bull, Haas and Williams have yet to formally communicate their plans.
