More rusty parts !

Hello All, noticed this yesterday ( see pic ) , behind the clutch pedal. Steering rack I guess.

Has anyone else noticed this ?
Got it fixed under warranty ?

Is it safe to drive while waiting to get fixed ?

Honestly beginning to give up on Alfa ....another issue to add to the growing list ...too many problems for any new car

tbh that only looks like surface rust nothing to worry about surely, but doesn't look good I'll admit.

I've seen similar on most cars I have owned, they never paint or protect the rack shaft probably because the clamp works better on bare metal rather than on a greasy surface.
