Future of Alfa Romeo in Formula 1 seems uncertain

It is uncertain whether Alfa Romeo will continue in Formula 1 . The Italian brand has been strategically, commercially and technologically linked to Sauber since 2018, but that may be coming to an end, La Gazzetta Dello Sport reports.

The future of the Alfa Romeo brand in the pinnacle of motorsport depends on the forthcoming decisions at board level. The merger between FIAT and Peugeot is the reason for this.

Fiat Chrysler (FCA) and Peugeot (PSA) will continue under the name Stellantis. Stellantis now owns the brands Jeep, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Abarth, Dodge, Ram (all previously FCA) and Peugeot, Citroën, DS, Opel and Vauxhall (all previously PSA).

Merger may have consequences

"In the plans of the new global auto giant, which will arise from the merger between FCA and PSA, there will also be a redefining of the sporting activities of the group's brands," wrote Italy's largest sports newspaper. "Whether the historic brand (Alfa Romeo) stays in Formula 1 will depend on the new industrial plans deriving from the merger that was announced on January 4 after more than a year of negotiations."
