Alfa Romeo set to rejoin F1 with HaasF1

It seems Alfa Romeo could be ready to enter Formula 1 as early as next season. Earlier this week we reported how Alfa Romeo had attended an F1 engine meeting amongst other manufacturers, now it seems the legendary Italian marque could be set to rejoin the Formula grid.

Some time ago, Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne said that the iconic Italian name “should be reiterated as a sports brand and consider the possibility to race in F1”.
“How? Probably in collaboration with Ferrari,” he added.

Now, Germany’s Auto Bild reports rumours that Alfa Romeo could support the Ferrari ‘B team’ Haas next year.

Haas’s “Ferrari customer engines would bear the Alfa name,” the report speculated. “Ferrari could then place junior driver Antonio Giovinazzi at Haas.”

Haas are seventh in the team rankings heading into this weekend’s British Grand Prix.

This would certainly be a good way to bring the Alfa Romeo name back to Formula 1 without the expense of running a full team.
