Alfa Romeo premieres documentary on YouTube about its last years in F1 before leaving the site to Audi

The Formula 1 team Alfa Romeo Team ORLEN has just presented the first episode of a documentary series that will take fans “Beyond the Visible” into the world of competition, showing -among other things- what happens behind the scenes before and after each race.

They will be published on YouTube a total of five monthly deliveries (and two additional videos), and each episode is centered around a different topic. According to Alfa Romeo, the docuseries wants to convey “the passion, experience and dedication of the team” as the season unfolds.

The daily routine of more than 500 experts

Now that it has transpired that Audi has bought 75% of Sauber’s structurethe same one that until now supported Alfa Romeo and before that BMW- and will enter F1 in 2026 taking its place, the series will take on a certain halo of romance for fans.

“Each season has a beginning and behind each of these beginnings there is a time of tireless work, updates and tests. A time full of adrenaline and passion, coming from the perfect alchemy with Sauber”, reads the description of the first video uploaded today to the Alfa Romeo YouTube platform.

This initial episode, called ‘Before we hit the ground’ (something like ‘Before touching the ground’ in Spanish) reveals the meticulous process that takes place in the weeks leading up to the start of a new F1 season.

This is a crucial phase in which intensity reigns, as it requires maximum concentration on the part of the entire team made up of hundreds of engineers, designers, managers, pilots…

Even so, with the slightest mistake, the result may not be as expected (without forgetting that many other factors such as luck will also play their cards).


With a great job of image and sound, the video of almost nine minutes long aims to convey to the viewer the strong emotions and large doses of adrenaline that are experienced behind the gallery in a Championship as important as F1.

Thus, the protagonists of the first episode “are responsible for a team that works hard to define strategies and objectives aimed at getting the most out of the group, always maintaining motivation at the highest level,” says Alfa Romeo.

However, only a small part of their efforts is the one that transcends to the public.


That is the reason for the birth of the docuseries “Beyond the Visible”, created with the aim of learning about the inner workings of a team, away from the spotlight and the deafening sound of the engines.

Alfa Romeo intends for fans to delve into the dark side of F1 through these videos, both on race weekends and at the team’s headquarters in Hinwil, Switzerland, and to witness the decision-making process decisions of a team, how to deal with the complexities of logistics or what daily life is like for the pilots and the rest of the staff.

Created by Lunartic Productionsthe docuseries will offer fans a very different view of the team: we will be able to see everything from the training of the drivers and mechanics, to what a Grand Prix weekend like the Italian one at Monza is like, going through stages as interesting as the car design.

According to the head of the team, Frédéric Vasseur, in the series “no aspect of the soul of the Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN is hidden”. The truth is that “Beyond the Visible” is a somewhat different approach to the world of Formula 1.
