In December 2019 the attempt of Alfa Romeo team to pass the FIA crash tests turned out to be a failure – during the tests, the chassis was destroyed. A month later the team brought to the landfill in Bollate new version of the car, and that time all went well.
Despite the close cooperation with Ferrari in terms of the power unit, the team traditionally works on the aerodynamics in Hinwil. In particular, it was possible to find a number of solutions on the C38 model, which borrowed from Mercedes. For example, it concerned the "tusks" under the nose cone, which help add downforce to the front of the car.
Alfa Romeo joined the teams that have already passed the crash test. These are Racing Point, Ferrari, Williams, Haas and Toro Rosso at the moment.
According to the latest information, Mercedes has already passed the load tests that are carried out in the back of the car, while there is no information about the homologation of the new Red Bull, Renault and McLaren chassis.
