Stacked wastegates, mcl33 nose, sidepods still separated like last year(?) and an interesting interpretation of the new FW regulations.

It resembles quite a bit the Brawn GP 001 debut wing... somehow

By far, the strangest/most interesting looking front wing so far.

Amazing job by Simone Resta and Luca Furbatto.

We can't know about the performance but the new ALFA is remarkable in terms of originality.
