- The presence of Valtteri Bottas at the Centro Stile was an opportunity for Alejandro Mesonero Romanos, Head of Design at Alfa Romeo, to talk with the driver in great secrecy about several projects that the brand is developing.
The pick-up of his very own Giulia GTAm is not the only reason that prompted the F1 champion to meet the Alfa Romeo team in Turin in a completely different scenario compared to the ordinary one. In fact, on race weekends, the team’s attention and focus is 100 % directed towards the performance on the racetrack without the slightest distraction. At the Centro Stile Alfa Romeo, instead, Valtteri Bottas met Alejandro Mesonero Romanos, Head of the Centro Stile Alfa Romeo, who discussed in detail and shared with him some of the projects the design team is working on.
Therefore, in addition to the purchase of the most powerful car ever produced by the brand, Valtteri Bottas offered his support to Alfa Romeo with great enthusiasm, contributing with personal suggestions and highly specific technical solutions.
The link born between Valtteri and the Alfa Romeo Team goes beyond the usual contractual obligations. A natural understanding and sharing of values have developed between the F1 driver and the Italian brand. This is an exciting chemistry that the brand has absolutely no intention of making an end in itself. In fact, there are several projects in which the driver has been personally involved. From styling to driving dynamics and aerodynamics, there are many areas of development in which his ten years of experience as an F1 driver can add value.
Alejandro Mesonero, Head of the Centro Stile Alfa Romeo
I was acquainted with the driver and the professional, but I am impressed by Valtteri’s passion for cars and in-depth knowledge of car design. His involvement can certainly provide an additional source of inspiration in selecting specific solutions. His point of view is always functional and highly driver oriented. From styling to ergonomic solutions, from aerodynamic solutions to emotions and driving pleasure: in every area of development his contribution and experience will be an exceptional insight.
