“We leap forward.”

After the Hungarian Grand Prix, Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN is sixth in the championship.

For Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN, the 2021 and 2022 seasons are completely different. Switzerland’s structure is ranked 6th with 51 points from 9th place by 3 points. The team hopes to battle McLaren and Alpine in the near future.

“We made a jump from 9th to 6th place. The next step is to reach 4th place. At the beginning of the season we fought with McLaren and Alpine. It was a very difficult month of July but we showed in Budapest that we can fight. Against them: we are at the bottom because we are financially under the budget ceiling. We are very far away.

“We have to fill this big gap for the next year. In terms of performance, it will be a real step. Regarding the structure related to the budget, we have to continue to hire about fifty people,” Frederic Vasseur told France. Racing

Develop the single-seat method

Recently, the team’s technical director Jan Monchaux explained that many parts of the 2022 single-seater will be reused in the next single-seater. A trend that all teams should follow.

“Everybody is doing that for limited budget problems. It’s better to keep your budget to build a new front wing later in the year than to redo the steering. The same gearbox, instead of high-performance parts and saying to yourself, ‘I’ll spend my resources on developing the weak points’. Teams will rebuild a complete car.” I don’t think so,” he said.
