Alfa wasn’t supposed to be showing off its new car until the first morning of testing next week but, as happens every time a team takes its car on track before officially revealing it, some photos of the car have already popped up.

The livery looks a little dull from a distance in these slightly grainy images but in some teaser shots actually shared by the team, it’s actually quite a nice design, mixing the traditional Alfa Romeo cloverleaf with some hearts – presumably in honour of Valentine’s Day. Isn’t that sweet?

It screams testing livery – or maybe even just a one-off for the shakedown – so chances are we might see something different on Monday when the car gets officially launched.
