Martin Brundle has a problem with Alfa Romeo’s new-look livery

Alfa Romeo revealed their 2023 livery on Tuesday.

February is an exciting month for Formula 1 fans, as teams slowly but surely get around to launching their seasons and unveiling their cars.

Haas kicked off the announcements by showing off their livery, before Red Bull and Williams joined in and launched their seasons and cars.

Alfa Romeo have now become the fourth team to show off their car for 2023, with the livery looking significantly different to the one used last season.

While the team’s 2022 car was predominantly red with white detailing and panels, Alfa Romeo have taken a different approach this year, with the car being mainly back, with large sections of deep red.

The black design is stunning and has already won over a lot of the fans, however Sky Sports pundit Martin Brundle has identified an issue with the livery, suggesting that it could hinder broadcasters.

“Love the back of the rear wing,” he tweeted.

“This new low weight carbon finish is becoming very prevalent in F1, weight limit drops by 2kgs this year and most teams were struggling before.

“But this car will be hard to see on TV or trackside on an overcast day.”

Haas have also gone back to black for 2023, ditching the Russian flag-style colour scheme that featured on the car during their spell being sponsored by Uralkali.

The American team were forced to change their livery halfway through the 2017 season, as exactly what Brundle feared came true.

The black on their design made it difficult to spot on track during certain conditions, forcing the team to add some white to parts of the car.

With Valtteri Bottas and Guanyu Zhou in the car once again this season, Alfa Romeo will be looking to build on their steady start to the new regulations.

The team started well with some impressive point scoring performances last year, but as other teams developed their cars they were somewhat left behind by the likes of McLaren and Alpine, resigning them to a lower midfield finish.
