Nervous Alfa Romeo runs out of spare F1 parts

Alfa Romeo is getting dangerously low in spare parts as the long and arduous 2021 season approaches its finale. “You don’t even have to leave the track limits set by the race director to damage your car,” Russian rookie Mazepin, stranded with no pace at the rear of the grid following extensive repairs, lamented. As for Alfa Romeo, the Sauber-run team was carefully managing its last few spare floors until the patched-up ones on both Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi’s cars were further damaged in Qatar. Two damaged underbodies were returned to Hinwil after Brazil for repairs, and the team is now racing against the clock to get them back in time for Saudi Arabia. “You don’t build any new parts like that so late in the season,” admitted team manager Beat Zehnder.
