Why Ferrari holds the key to Alfa Romeo’s new 2021 F1 car

Alfa Romeo has launched its 2021 Formula 1 car, the C41, which it hopes will allow the team to join the frantic midfield battle this year after spending 2020 cut adrift in a group of three teams at the back. In this video Edd Straw looks at the changes the team has made, how it’s spent its permitted development tokens, why Alfa has followed-up last year’s C39 with the C41 name, and what the team needs from Ferrari to take a proper step forward

    While I am a McLaren fan, I have loved the Alfa Romeo colors on the car. It is the most attractive livery on the grid. Pity it has a Ferrari under the hood. That Ferrari engine is a hybrid between a boat anchor and rubber band power.

    Alfa, HAAS and Astroll Martin will go through intense changes this season. Form leadership/ownership changes to new alliances or even a new unexpected PU supplier... *2021 will be a memorable season in terms of F1 changes, silly season, surprises, etc. As to racing... only RB or Alpine may surprise.*

    I don’t know what’s wrong between English journalists and Antonio Giovinazzi. They simply don’t like him. I don’t think giovinazzi is the fastest guy in F1 but if you guys analyze his races you can see how the team fucked up his strategy almost in every race. So.. I won’t say inconsistent just because he finishes races behind Kimi.

    They need better drivers. Kimi is way past his prime. He was past his prime even at Ferrari. I love the guy, but that's just a fact. And Italian Jesus seems to have moments of class, but they are so few and far in between. Very few,, and very far in between.. If they stay in 8th again this year, I honestly think they'd be better off just bringing in rookies for 2022 if they're still in F1.

    They will sub-optimize performance by keeping Giovinazzi in the second seat. Could have had any number of excellent young drivers but no.... On a different note, F1 wants to provide the best show for its fans...... Well, Kimi is a big party of that, he has captured the heart of many fans by simply being himself rather than the stylized behavior of most rookies. Kimi Forever!!

    I've never been a fan of, nor understood why. competing works teams provide engines to non-works teams. I can understand Honda providing engines to multiple teams if Honda themselves are not competing as a team.... but with Mercedes providing McLaren (and McLaren needing to alter the car to fit the new engine), and Ferrari providing Alfa Romeo.... why would they provide an engine that's as good, or better than the works team's engine? What are the rules around this? Do the teams request certain criteria for the engine? Or get what they are give? *is* the engine the same as the works teams?

    Legit question: Can any of these teams that borrow from the top dogs actually compete with them? What I mean is, won't an Alfa Romeo always be worse than a Ferrari, a Racing Point/Aston be worse than a full on Mercedes, etc? It seems like the customer teams compete with each other but their performance hinges on the advancements of power units they don't have input on, and will likely never outdo the producer of said engines. Maybe I'm just not understanding, and I don't mean to sound ignorant. Just trying to understand how a team like Alfa Romeo or Haas Ferrari will ever beat an actual Ferrari.
