OFFICIAL: Alfa Romeo and Sauber to continue partnership in 2021

Alfa Romeo and Sauber will continue to work together in 2021. It is not a big surprise, but it has now been confirmed that the illustrious Italian brand will be committed to Formula 1 for at least another year.

In 2019, Alfa Romeo returned to Formula 1 in a new partnership with Sauber. With Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi as their lineup, they even had an Italian driver. The team's performance in 2020 has dropped but that has given no reason for Alfa to pull out of the sport.

"Racing and performance are at the core of Alfa Romeo’s DNA. The brand was practically born on a racetrack and today we continue to compete at the most technologically advanced level of motorsport. The partnership with Sauber Group also allows our customers to benefit from exclusive racing know-how, as it is the case of the all-new Giulia GTA and GTAm, which incorporate Sauber Engineering’s technical input particularly as it relates to advanced aerodynamics," said the CEO of Alfa, Mike Manley.

"The extension of our relationship with Alfa Romeo is a true statement of intent from both parties. In Sauber, Alfa Romeo found a committed, performance-driven partner to which they could entrust their brand: we are honoured to carry the heritage and past success of Alfa Romeo in our name. Both parties always intended for this relationship to bear fruit in the long term: we have laid some solid foundations in the last three season and we aim to reap the rewards of this work in 2021 and beyond," concluded Frederic Vasseur in the statement from the team.
