Alfa Romeo returns to F1 in Sauber partnership

Alfa Romeo returns to F1 in Sauber partnership:

The Alfa Romeo name will return to Formula 1 in 2018 in partnership with Sauber and Ferrari.

The
Swiss outfit will be known as the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team from next
year onwards, with the two companies entering into a multi-year
agreement.

The deal will include “strategic, commercial and technological
cooperation” and “the exchange of engineering and technical know-how”,
said a Sauber statement.

As reported by Motorsport.com last week, an Alfa tie-up was a key part of the negotiations for an enhanced partnership between Ferrari and Sauber.

Ferrari
chairman Sergio Marchionne had made clear in recent months that he was
keen to bring the Alfa name back to F1 for the first time since 1985.

“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 Marchionne.

“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.”

Sauber is expected to run Ferrari
protege and Formula 2 champion Charles Leclerc next season, and is
considering whether to continue with Marcus Ericsson in the second car
or replace him with Antonio Giovinazzi – another Ferrari junior.

Sauber chairman Pascal Picci said Alfa was an ideal partner for his team.

“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,” he said.

“Working closely with a car manufacturer is a great opportunity for
the Sauber Group to further develop its technology and engineering
projects.

"We are confident that together we can bring the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1
Team great success, and look forward to a long and successful
partnership.”

Alfa has not been involved in F1 since its works team project of
1979-85, and has not had a high-profile motorsport programme since its
touring car efforts of the 1990s and early 2000s.
