What sneak preview tells us about Alfa's pragmatic refinement
By:

Alfa Romeo offered a peek of its 2020 C39 having its shakedown at Fiorano, and several neat revisions can be detected as the team seeks to consolidate its position in Formula 1's midfield.

As a Valentine's Day gift to its loyal fanbase – and, presumably, the Formula 1 media circus – Alfa Romeo capped an already launch-intensive day with a surprise reveal of the new C39 undergoing its shakedown at the Fiorano circuit.

Dressed in a snakeskin livery, the C39 also bore a number of key design changes over its predecessor. In a stylish move, it has shaped the front snorkel into the shape of the grille typically seen on Alfa Romeo's fleet of road-going vehicles. Changing the shape of the snorkel probably has no real aerodynamic effect, but it's a neat little detail to talk about.
