This is Alfa Romeo's new F1 vehicle

"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 Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Alfa Romeo CEO Sergio Marchionne. The deal comes just a matter of weeks after Marchionne warned Ferrari could quit F1 if it is not happy with the sport's future plans following the unveiling of its vision for power unit regulations from 2021 onwards. A customer engine deal was believed to include an agreement for it to take one of Ferrari's young drivers, with Leclerc's speed this year making it clear he was the preferred option to take the first seat.

Marchionne's latest threat has curious timing, given that the new Alfa Romeo-Sauber partnership is being touted as a "long term" one.

"The dialogue has started and will continue to evolve". And we certainly want Ferrari in Formula One. "With Marcus [Ericsson] and Charles [Leclerc], we have a strong driver duo for the debut season of the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team".

"Such projects are always designed for the long term", confirmed Sauber team boss Frederic Vasseur. Otherwise the group wouldn't have brought the Alfa brand into Formula 1.

Sauber has undergone a dramatic change of direction this year after former team principal Monisha Kaltenborn was moved aside in favour of Fred Vasseur. "Alfa Romeo engineers and technicians, who have already demonstrated their capabilities with the newly-launched models, Giulia and Stelvio, will have the opportunity to make that experience available to the Sauber F1 Team". He had the chance to drive in four FP1 sessions and two tire tests for us this season, and convinced the team with his professionalism and charisma.
