Love was in the air at Alfa Romeo on Friday as their F1 2020 challenger hit the track for the first time in a Valentine’s Day-inspired livery.

It is the second year in a row that the Swiss team have offered a first glimpse of their car in a one-off livery on February 14 – after revealing a heart-themed camouflage design in 2019.

This time, the new car was coated in snakeskin-style black, with a red heart displaying the Alfa Romeo logo.

Kimi Raikkonen was the driver tasked with debuting the C39 as he hit the track at Fiorano in Italy for some shakedown laps – although Alfa Romeo won’t officially reveal their latest car until the opening morning of winter testing next week.

Last year, they switched from their Valentine’s Day look to red and white for the full launch.
