    Default F1 - Alfa Romeo to return to F1 in 2018

    Alfa Romeo will return to Formula 1 in 2018 as a major backer for Sauber. The team will be renamed Alfa Romeo Sauber Formula 1 Team.

    It looks like the new Alfa Romeo Sauber Formula 1 Team will have access to latest update Ferrari engines next year as opposed to the year old versions they have had in their use this year.

    Given that Sergio Marchionne is the CEO and Chairman of Ferrari and the CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, which owns Alfa Romeo, it's not surprising that Alfa Romeo Sauber Formula 1 Team would get better treatment than Sauber.

    I wonder how closely Alfa Romeo Sauber Formula 1 Team and Ferrari will work together in the future?

    They'll be fine as long as they don't use FIAT electrical systems........

    That's in the past, Sergio Marchionne even turned Fiat around to be profitable, he sacked management who could not deliver, imagine that

    Hard to believe, particularly for an old sceptic....

    reminds me of a typo in official report, advising that a sceptic (should have been septic) had been installed in the managers residence

    So true, I stressed when Renault were using Magnetti Marelli systems.

    This thread gave me a sudden vivid mental picture - Bruno Giacomelli in early 1980s Alfa Romeo F1 GP car, when we first got F1 televised in Australia. I think that was pre turbo days when they made some noise. My wife thought we were talking about a Jack O'Malley.

    So they have some history - of course going further back also into the 1950s.

    Good name to have back.
