Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal at Alfa Romeo Racing said in an announcement “It is a pleasure to announce that we will enter the 2019 Formula One World Championship with the Team name Alfa Romeo Racing,”
“After initiating the collaboration with our Title Sponsor Alfa Romeo in 2018, our team made fantastic progress on the technical, commercial and sporting side.
“This has given a boost of motivation to each team member, be that track-side or at the headquarter in Switzerland, as the hard work invested has become reflected in our results.
What this means for the team however is no more than a name change with the ownership and management of Sauber to remain unchanged and independent.
