Sauber renamed Alfa Romeo Racing for 2019 season

They’ve been a familiar entry on the grid since 1993, but the Sauber name will disappear from Formula 1 this campaign, with the iconic Swiss squad set to race under a new guise: Alfa Romeo Racing.

The Italian car manufacturer returned to F1 last season after an absence of more than 30 years, signing a multi-year technical and commercial partnership with Sauber.

And this year, as the team embark on the 2019 season with an all-new driver line-up of Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi, the Alfa name will come fully to the fore, despite the ownership and management of the Hinwil-based squad remaining unchanged and independent.

“It is a pleasure to announce that we will enter the 2019 Formula One World Championship with the Team name Alfa Romeo Racing,” said Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal at 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.

“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.
