Alfa Romeo returns to Formula 1 30 years after the hand of the Sauber team


Alfa Romeo returns to Formula 1 more than thirty years after its last participation in the maximum category of single-seaters. This was announced by the Sauber team, which changes its name to Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team starting next year .

The agreement includes strategic, technological and commercial cooperation . This means that Sauber will assemble the latest technology used by Ferrari and, therefore, also, its power units. For the Hinwil team this deal is a salvation after several seasons in the back of the grid and for Alfa Romeo and the FCA Group , the opportunity to re-launch the brand.

The Formula 1 is in luck. The return of classic teams such as Alfa Romeo is always good news after several years in which teams with factory support could be counted on hand. Although Alfa Romeo, in principle, will use the technology of his teammate, Ferrari, his presence on the grid has been very well received both by the organization of the Championship and by the fans.

"This agreement with Sauber F1 Team is a big step in the refurbishment of Alfa Romeo, which returns to Formula 1 after more than thirty years of absence, a legendary brand that has helped to make the history of this sport, Alfa Romeo will join to other major automakers participating in Formula 1. The brand will also benefit from the exchange of technology and strategic knowledge with a partner with the experience of the Sauber F1 Team "Sergio Marchionne, CEO, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.

From Alfa Romeo, with Sergio Marchionne as spokesperson, they trust that this new agreement will help them to improve their future street models and that the collaboration with the Sauber team will be in crescendo.

"The engineers and technicians of Alfa Romeo, who have already demonstrated their capabilities with the newly launched models, Giulia and Stelvio, will have the opportunity to put that experience at the disposal of the Sauber F1 Team, while Alfa Romeo fans will have Once again the opportunity to support an automaker that is determined to start writing a new and exciting chapter in its legendary and unique sports history "Sergio Marchionne, CEO, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.

A great solution for a bad time


In a time when several Formula 1 teams had to close because of lack of sponsors and capital, the survival of the Sauber team was largely due to the brilliance shown by Monisha Kalternborn . The Indian businesswoman managed to bring the team to the float but the differences with the new owners of the team forced him to leave his position that he inherited from Peter Sauber himself .
In fact, Sauber came to sign a pre-contract with Honda for which he was close to becoming his guinea pig for next season, but the change of owners threw all plans to the ground.
The agreement with Alfa Romeo is, without doubt, the best thing that could have happened to the Swiss team that is now starting a new stage in its history. One where you should definitely leave the back of the grid and start fighting regularly for the points .
