Alfa Romeo are eighth in the constructors’ championship with five races remaining in 2020
The Alfa Romeo name will remain in Formula 1 next season after the Italian car company extended its deal with the Sauber team by one year.
Alfa has had a commercial arrangement with the Swiss team since 2018, when the famous brand returned to F1 for the first time since 1987.
The team have not confirmed their driver line-up but Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi are set to stay on.
An announcement on Raikkonen and Giovinazzi is expected soon.
Alfa Romeo are eighth in the constructors’ championship with five races remaining in 2020 and have spent the majority of the season battling with Williams and Haas at the back of the grid.
Team principal Frederic Vasseur said: “Both parties always intended for this relationship to bear fruit in the long term: we have laid some solid foundations in the last three season and we aim to reap the rewards of this work in 2021 and beyond.” (BBC)
