Alfa Romeo will run a livery based on the ‘Art Car’ design they revealed earlier this year at the Dutch Grand Prix.
The ‘Art Car’ itself will appear at Zandvoort this weekend in the circuit’s Fan Zone, then sold at auction to raise money for charity Save the Children, but more notably features of its design will be incorporated into Alfa Romeo’s garage in the pit lane: the cars will feature updated liveries and the team’s trackside infrastructure will be changed to have a matching visual identity to the cars.
Alfa Romeo described the design which will appear on Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu’s cars this weekend as “a tribute livery to the Art Car, emblazoned with Boogie’s distinctive art.” It issued the image above which closely resembles the design shown earlier this year. The team’s garage panelling, garage nameboards and drivers’ suits will also be revised to complement the new look.
“This project has brought Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake closer to the fans in each phase of its development,” said team representative Alessandro Alunni Bravi. “It has been an exciting, ground-breaking journey the team has been proud to undertake, alongside trusted partners and an inspiring artist.”
It is the second race in a row that Alfa Romeo have revised their livery, having added neon green elements to its usual black and red livery for the Belgian Grand Prix. That too was made available on F1 23, as the use of one-off or themed liveries become more frequent in F1.
