Alfa Romeo Returning to F1

Alfa Romeo Returning to F1



Nov 29, 2017

Alfa Romeo is legitimately returning to the Formula 1 paddock for the first time since 1985.

The Italian marque just announced a multi-year technical and commercial partnership with Switzerland’s Sauber F1 Team in a deal that will see the team renamed Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 in 2018. The car will wear Alfa branding and use 2018-spec Ferrari engines.

For more than 12 months Ferrari chairman and FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne has been vocal about his desire for a Scuderia junior squad, which would not only nourish young Italian drivers but also share technology and costs with the senior team.

“This agreement with the Sauber F1 Team is a significant step in the reshaping of the Alfa Romeo brand, which will return to Formula 1 after an absence of more than 30 years,” said Sergio in a statement.

“A storied marque that has helped make the history of this sport, Alfa Romeo will join other major automakers that participate in Formula 1. The brand itself will also benefit from the sharing of technology and strategic know-how with a partner of the Sauber F1 Team’s undisputed experience.”

It’s a little ironic to think of the Alfa F1 effort as a Ferrari junior team considering Enzo Ferrari got his start running Alfa Romeo’s racing program, but that’s what you get when you stop racing for more than 30 years.

“Alfa Romeo has a long history of success in Grand Prix racing, and we are very proud that this internationally renowned company has chosen to work with us for its return to the pinnacle of motorsport,” added Pascal Picci, Chairman of Sauber Holding AG.

Drivers have yet to be announced but it’s believed Ferrari junior drivers Charles Leclerc, fresh off his F2 championship and current reserve driver Antonio Giovinazzi are the leading candidates.

About Sauber Motorsport

In 1970 Peter Sauber founded his company and designed his first racing car in the cellar of his parents' house. The race team grew steadily and enjoyed its first major international successes in the late 1980s. As the Mercedes works team, Sauber celebrated a one-two victory in the Le Mans 24-hour race in 1989 and back-to-back Drivers' and Manufacturers' titles in the World Sports Car Championship in 1989 and 1990. In 1993 Sauber entered Formula One. Among the team's F1 highlights have been a fourth-place finish in the Constructors' World Championship in 2001 as an independent team and - in partnership with BMW - a one-two finish in the 2008 Canadian Grand Prix on the way to third place in the constructors' standings that year. In 2010 Sauber became an independent outfit once again. 2012 was a very good year of the Sauber F1 Team, headlined by four podium finishes, 126 World Championship points and sixth place in the constructors' standings. The 11th October 2012 marked a milestone in the history of the team - the day when Sauber stepped down as Team Principal and passed on the baton to Monisha Kaltenborn. Between 1993 and the end of 2016 the team contested 424 grand prix in Formula One. In 2017 the Sauber F1 Team celebrates another milestone: it is the 25th Formula One season in the teams' history. The fourth oldest Formula 1 team starts together with its new owner, Longbow Finance S. A., into a new era. In 2017, Frédéric Vasseur was named as the new Managing Director and CEO of Sauber Motorsport AG, and Team Principal of the Sauber F1 Team. Sauber has its headquarters in Hinwil, in the Swiss canton of Zurich. The team's state of the art factory houses manufacturing facilities and offices spanning an area of 15,600 square meters and boasts one of the most advanced wind tunnels in F1.
