Alfa Romeo will continue to run in Formula 1 at least through 2025 as it has extended its agreement with Sauber, the team announced Wednesday, July 14.
The team first rejoined F1 in 2018 after signing a technical and commercial partnership with Sauber and then rebranded as Alfa Romeo in 2019. It previously competed in F1 from 1979-1985, fielding drivers such as Vittorio Brambilla, Mario Andretti and Eddie Cheever.
“We are delighted to be announcing the extension of this partnership. Alfa Romeo have been an incredible companion over the last few years, and we are even more excited about the chapters that are yet to come,” Alfa Romeo Team Principal Vasseur said in a release.
“The new regulations are giving us the chance to make another step forward and I firmly believe we are perfectly placed to make big gains together. We are looking forward to our future together and to keeping moving towards the front of the grid.
“This relationship is also very important for our company as a whole, beyond the track: the work we have done in the automotive world has shown the extent of the technology and manufacturing skills of Sauber Engineering and we are confident we can continue working for Alfa Romeo on new and exciting projects that will shape the future of the car industry.”
