Alfa Romeo will mark the anniversary of the company’s founding by sporting a tribute on its Formula 1 livery at this weekend’s Styrian Grand Prix.
Alfa Romeo is today (Thursday) commemorating the 111th anniversary of its founding, with several initiatives taking place, primarily at its museum in Arese, Italy.
In order to mark the anniversary a special ‘111’ themed logo will replace Alfa Romeo’s crest on the engine cover of the C41s at the Red Bull Ring.
On the nosecone of the cars Alfa Romeo’s iconic trilobe will replace the logo.
Alfa Romeo returned to Formula 1 as Sauber’s title partner in 2018 before taking on naming rights in 2019.
Its continuation with Sauber beyond the end of 2021 has yet to be determined.
The team holds eighth place in the Constructors’ Championship, having taken two points, one apiece from Antonio Giovinazzi in Monaco and Kimi Raikkonen in Azerbaijan.
