Alfa Romeo Racing

Post by overboost »

Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team is now simply Alfa Romeo Racing. So 'so long' to the Sauber name, it was a good run.

So what implications does this name change have? Remember the kerfuffle with Force India?

Wondering too if Raikkonen knew this was in the wind before agreeing to move to Sauber? So much for working close to home and family? Will driver contracts require re-negotiation?

Headquarters seem to stay in Hinwil, Switzerland, thus, close to Kimi's home.

Besides which, these guys travel a lot... and, I'm sure they can afford the air fare home,
regardless of where they may be at the end of a racing weekend!!
