New Alfa Romeo C43 makes its debut on track in Spain · RaceFans

Alfa Romeo has become the first team to run its new car for the 2023 F1 season on track.

The C43 is running at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona today. The team issued video showing Valtteri Bottas at the wheel of the car.

Alfa Romeo, which is run by Sauber, launched its latest car at its base in Hinwil, Switzerland on Tuesday. However the machine presented by drivers Bottas and Zhou Guanyu was a model of the design. The team also issued renderings of its 2023 car.

The real C43 has now appeared for the first time at the track which will host the Spanish Grand Prix in May.

All teams are permitted to conduct a limited amount of running with their current cars outside of races and designated test sessions. Their running is limited to no more than 100 kilometres, which is 21 laps of the Circuit de Catalunya.

The model of the C43 which was presented two days ago is being auctioned by the team. The current highest bid is £98,500.
