    As an Alfisti, I am delighted that they're back (sort of, given that it's just a rebranding exercise for Ferrari engines), but I can't help but wish they were in the back of anything but a Sauber...:disappointed:

    Very happy about this. Although it is basically a Ferrari junior team it's nice to have a classic name like that back on the grid. I do think the Alfa investment, the two Ferrari junior drivers and the latest Ferrari spec engine will shove them up the grid next year.

    Kind of scuppers Haas though.

    Nice to see Alfa Romeo Back. I hope it is going to Called 'Alpha Romeo' and Not 'Alpha Romeo Sauber.' Hate when they they do that.

    Edit:

    Urgh

    'The deal will see the Swiss squad renamed Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team from 2018, with the car bearing the Alfa Romeo logo and being equipped with 2018-spec Ferrari engines. '

    I wonder if Haas were approached first and turned the offer down? I've no evidence for this but Haas had set themselves up as Ferrari jnr. It would have been good US marketing for Alfa.

    I think that's probably the case cider_and_toast but I think they refused to run the Ferrari juniors.

    Terrific. I mean, it'll be terrible, but it won't be any worse than Osella.

    Next: replace Ericsson with Ghinzani.

    I'd very much doubt Alfa Romeo will be at the back for long..on current form Toro Rosso will bring up the rear especially now they will be towing the piece of junk called Honda engines

    I wonder what the reaction would be if Alfa Romeo start beating Ferrari

    Its good for F1 that a legendary name is back in the sport

    I can see an Alfa driven by Charles Leclerc beating a Ferrari driven by Kimi next year on occasions.

    Ultimately though it's a Torro Rosso Red Bull or Mercedes Williams situation so it'll never happen.

    In 2015, we saw the toro rosso's finish ahead of the red bulls on several occasions...

    "Alfa Romeo Sauber" - the ARS team hanging round the backside of the grid? (or something)

    With the Ferrari's being Rosso Corsa I hope Alfa go white with the hint of red.

    FB That would be hard/annoying to distinguish for the Ferraris on track. (Like when red bull and toro rosso were running slightly different combinations of yellow/purple.) Also, I think it has already been confirmed (somewhere) that the ARS's will run a blue livery.

    RasputinLives : No, but you were talking about beating them on occasions, not the season as a whole.
