Sauber to rebrand as Alfa Romeo Racing

1 February 2019

Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team is to change its name to Alfa Romeo Racing going into the 2019 Formula One World Championship.

World Champion driver Kimi Räikkönen and young Italian Antonio Giovinazzi will drive for the rebranded Team. Sauber’s ownership and management will remain unchanged and independent.

Sauber and Alfa Romeo began their commercial and technical partnership last year with Alfa Romeo becoming the Title Sponsor of Sauber F1, leading Sauber to change its name to Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team.

Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal Alfa Romeo Racing, said: “ After initiating the collaboration with our Title Sponsor Alfa Romeo in 2018, our team made fantastic progress on the technical, commercial, and sporting side. This has given a boost of motivation to each team member, be that track-side or at the headquarter in Switzerland, as the hard work invested has become reflected in our results. We aim to continue developing every sector of our team while allowing our passion for racing, technology and design to drive us forward”.

Mike Manley, chief executive, FCA, commented: “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”.
