The most striking thing about the team’s new livery is the fact that it is basically an inverted version of the colors seen on the C39. In essence, the parts of the car that were previously red are now white and vice versa.

Nevertheless, the livery is gorgeous and without further ado, let us dive into some reactions.

Can the C41 fare better than its predecessor?

For a livery that stunning, it sure needs to be in the top 10 a lot often. However, F1 doesn’t work like that. The car may be a sight for sore eyes, but ultimately its performance will be what people remember it for. And to be honest, it might not really be remembered at all considering that the team is expected to be battling at the back of the grid.

However, the Hinwil-based outfit would hope that 2021 brings more cheer. They could only manage a total of just eight points from 17 races last year, a far cry from the 57 points they notched in 2019.

The Swiss team would hope that Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi can keep the likes of Haas and Williams behind them and make an entrance in the top 10 a lot more often. That will be easier said than done considering how competitive the mid-field is. But trust a former world champion and a man who dreams to drive for Ferrari to give it their all.
