Alfa Romeos unleashed in Milan

Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 team in Milan

The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 team made a special appearance on the streets of Milan this week, ahead of the Italian Grand Prix.

The Formula One racer, along with the range-topping Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, was taking part in the opening of “F1 Unleash”.

The free-to-attend “F1 Unleash” event runs until September 1 as a warm up for the race at Monza.

The public are invited to the Fan Village where they can see the current Alfa Romeo Sauber showcar alongside the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio “NRING” – a limited-edition model created to celebrate the records set by the brand on the famous Nürgburgring circuit in Germany.

The Monza Grand Prix circuit near Milan is one of the Formula 1’s classic venues and is inextricably linked to the history of Alfa Romeo.

An Alfa Romeo 158 driven by Nino Farina won the first race in 1950, paving his way to the championship title, while his team mate Luigi Fagioli took third place in that inaugural race.

This season marks the return of Alfa Romeo to Formula 1, so this special event in the heart of Milan is taking on an even deeper meaning, strengthening the bonds that exist between the brand, the city and the fans.
