Alfa Romeo returns to the F1 after a 30-year hiatus.
The new team name Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 was officially announced earlier this month. Details of the deal include Ferrari powerplants for the Dallara-chassis race cars and technical know-how from the Fiat-Chrylser Automotive (FCA), the owners of Fiat, Ferrari and Alfa Romeo.

FCA chairman Sergio Marchionni said…
“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. A storied marque that has helped make the history of this sport, Alfa Romeo will join other major automakers that participate in Formula 1.”
Even though the engine is a Ferrari, and the team is Swiss, the fact the legendary name of Alfa Romeo has returned to F1 is a landmark event.
