All Alfa Romeos in F1 History


The Story ofAlfa Romeo in Formula 1 is closely linked to the beginnings of the discipline, in 1950, since the Italian brand was then the leading factory manufacturer. Logically, she won the first race and the first World Championship, with Giuseppe Farinabefore Juan Manuel Fangio did the first of his world crowns with Alfa, in 1951.

Alfa Romeo withdrew at the end of 1951, faced with a change in regulations scheduled for 1952. It was not until the mid-1960s and the beginning of the 1970s for a discreet return as an engine manufacturer. In 1976, again return, but this time as a team partner Brabham led by Bernie Ecclestone, with a V12 engine. If the 1978 season was quite interesting with the team finishing third with the constructors, the collaboration was not good enough to last and it came to an abrupt end in 1979.

The situation motivates a return as a full-fledged manufacturer that same year. But this second passage in F1, which will last until 1985, will be far from the peaks reached in the 1950s: two poles, a single podium and sixth position in the classification as the best result in 1983. Nothing to brag about and the withdrawal in 1985 is the logical next step, especially since the car was fairly mediocre that season.

After returning as the team’s title sponsor Sauber in 2018 under the impetus of Sergio Marchionne, it was not until 2019 that Alfa Romeo returned as the official manufacturer, even if this is a fiction because, if the chassis are well stamped by the Italian brand, now owned by the Fiat group , the management of the team falls to Sauber Motorsport.
