The Alfa Romeo team will be the last to reveal their 2019 beast to the world on the 18th of February. But that won’t stop them from teasing the fans and getting them to guess the livery. Recently, the team posted a cryptic tweet to wish fans a happy Valentine’s day. Interestingly, the picture looked uncannily like an F1 car livery.
However, a number of fans are quite fed up of being led on a wild goose chase. First, it was Mercedes with this particular tweet.

Then, it was Red Bull’s turn.

The Austrian team later confirmed that this was just a one-off livery.
Now, Alfa Romeo have joined the party with this tweet.

Naturally, this was the reaction of the fans.
Oh god please don’t do a Mercedes or a Red Bull
