Sauber Becomes Alfa Romeo Racing For 2019 Formula 1 Season

The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team will only be known as Alfa Romeo Racing starting this season, which means that fans everywhere will have to say goodbye to the Sauber name, which has been active since 1993.

In 2019, Alfa Romeo Racing cars will sport a time-honored four-leaf clover emblem which has been on some of the automaker’s fastest models ever since 1923. The official unveiling for the new cars will take place on February 18, the first day of pre-season testing.

“It is a pleasure to announce that we will enter the 2019 Formula One World Championship with the Team name “Alfa Romeo Racing”. After initiating the collaboration with our Title Sponsor Alfa Romeo in 2018, our team made fantastic progress on the technical, commercial, and sporting side,” stated Alfa Romeo Racing team boss, Frederic Vasseur.

Meanwhile, FCA CEO, Mike Manley added that “Alfa Romeo Racing is a new name with a long history in Formula One. We’re proud to collaborate with Sauber in bringing Alfa Romeo’s tradition of technical excellence and Italian panache to the pinnacle of motorsport. Make no mistake: with Kimi Räikkönen and Antonio Giovinazzi on one side of the pit wall and Alfa Romeo and Sauber expertise on the other, we are here to compete.”

Last year, Sauber finished 8th in the Constructor standings with a total of 48 points, just 4 points shy of 7th place Force India.
