Alfa Romeo Is Returning to Formula 1

Alfa Romeo to return to F1 with Sauber Alfa Romeo Is Returning to Formula 1

FCA signed a multi-year technical and commercial partnership with Sauber that begins with the 2018 season.

Alfa Romeo has been in F1 off and on for decades now, with achievements ranging from winning the inaugural World Championship of Drivers in 1950 to serving as an engine supplier for several teams from 1961 until 1979.

Alfa Romeo is returning to Formula 1... but not quite in the way that you'd hope.

"We are honored to be the first Italian brand to ever receive this prestigious award and we're excited for the future of Alfa Romeo here in North America and overseas", said Reid Bigland, head of Alfa Romeo. In this way, Alfa Romeo's deal is similar to the one between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing. Though Alfa's main F1 success came with world titles in 1950 and 1951, in the mid 1980s it developed infamously powerful, thirsty and unreliable turbo engines with over 800bhp, before leaving the sport as a constructor in 1985. Engineers from both sides of the fence will share knowledge and experience in order to improve both the F1 vehicle and Alfa Romeo's road cars.

For comparison's sake, at this point in his presidency, Obama had played 26 rounds of golf, according to CBS News' Mark Knoller . And on Friday, Trump played with longtime traitor and uninvited cookout guest Tiger Woods and golfer Dustin Johnson.


Alfa Romeo will be the title sponsor of the Swiss team which will be named Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team and have the cars bear the Alfa Romeo logo.

"Working closely with a vehicle manufacturer is a great opportunity for the Sauber Group to further develop its technology and engineering projects". Following a clear and well-defined strategy, Alfa Romeo is writing a new chapter in its more than century-long history that represents an extraordinary opportunity to realize the brand's full potential.

About Sauber MotorsportIn 1970 Peter Sauber founded his company and designed his first racing vehicle in the cellar of his parents' house. In 2010 Sauber became an independent outfit once again.

The partnership had been rumored for much of the summer, especially considering that FIAT Chrysler owns power unit supplier Ferrari. The marque was last seen in F1 in the 1988 season. 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.
