Alfa Romeo returns to F1 after 30-year hiatus

Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo has confirmed it will be returning to Formula 1 racing for the 2018 season. The brand will sponsor the Sauber Formula 1 team, starting from the 2018 season, to strengthen the link between the Swiss F1 team and the Fiat Chrysler Alliance. FCA owns both Alfa Romeo and Ferrari, which supplies engines to the Sauber team.

CEO of FCA, Sergio Marchionne, described the partnership as a "multi-year technical and commercial partnership agreement."
