Alfa Romeo celebrate 111th anniversary with special Styrian Grand Prix livery
To celebrate 111 years of the Alfa Romeo marque, the Formula 1 team have revealed their C41 car will race in a special one-off livery for the Styrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring.
The Italian manufacturer have morphed their logo – most prominent on the engine bay – into a '111' shape to celebrate 111 years since they were founded, for this weekend's race in Austria.

"The cross is warped in a sequence of number one figures, developing in a perspective as to represent the passing of time and giving a dynamic twist to the number 111," said Alfa Romeo.
Another nod to Alfa Romeo's history will be present on the nosecones of the C41 car, reminiscent of the 'trilobe', a shape that can be found on the grilles of their range of road cars – as you can see in the picture gallery above.
The Alfa Romeo Museum near Milan will also have a range of activities this weekend, while the marque have promised "parades, special exhibitions and celebrations" across their various car clubs to celebrate the anniversary.
