Alfa Romeo, one of the main actors of Formula 1 history, who has returned to the circuit after 33 years, takes another important step and draws attention again.



Alfa Romeo continues to increase its claim with a surprise step. Finnish pilot Kimi Raikkönen will be competing for the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team in 2019, winning the 2007 Formula 1 World Championship with a total of 20 Grand Prix wins and a 100-time podium finish.

" Involving Kimi Räikkönen, one of the most prestigious athletes in motor sport history, is one of the key pillars of our project and brings us one step closer to our near future , " says Sauber Motor Sports CEO and Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team Team Manager, Frédéric Vasseur . Kimi's undisputed ability and F1 experience will not only contribute to the development of our car, but will also accelerate the growth and development process of our team as a whole. We will start with the determination to sign the 2019 season together, on a solid basis and with considerable consequences " .

On the other hand, the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team pilot and the younger 21-year-old Charles Leclerc will compete for the Scuderia Ferrari Team in 2019. Frédéric Vasseur also thanked Leclerc for a successful outcome in the first year of the Formula 1 Championship and pleased the team and stated that they would follow him closely.
