Full immersion in the Alfa Romeo world for the Alfa Romeo Racing F1 team drivers
The drivers of the "Alfa Romeo Racing" Formula One team Kimi Räikkönen and Antonio Giovinazzi experienced a day steeped in the Alfa Romeo brand ethos at the famous Balocco Proving Ground, the FCA group's iconic testing complex.
It was here that the very first Alfa Romeo models were assembled. Since then, its sporting legend has been a string of victories and top-three finishes in many international championships, including Formula One.
The brand won the very first edition of the Grand Prix championship in 1950, with Nino Farina driving an Alfa Romeo158. And the following year, Juan Manuel Fangio repeated this Formula One season victory in an Alfa Romeo 159.
Today, this glorious legacy is entrusted to the new "Alfa Romeo Racing" team. During the Balocco test drives, Antonio and Kimi were given a special Alfa Romeo "Welcome Kit" to make them feel at home at once.
The location for the day was the famous "Alfa Romeo Track", a 5.6-kilometre circuit which offers all the thrills of a real Formula One course. So the spotlights were on the superlative looks and performance of Giulietta, Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio, which co-starred with the drivers in exciting, breath-taking driving activities.
