They already run Ferrari engines. And their factory is not far from Ferrari's.

Everyday is a school day. Learning something new all the time

It would be a shame to see Sauber go. I always hoped that they could find the money (and maybe a little luck) to be able to become a privateer team at the top level, the way Williams did back in the 70s.

I'm ambivalent about an F1 Alfa team. We all know that there are certain forces in play that will ensure that there's no way they would compete on an even playing field with a certain Maranello based team...

Hard to become a fan of a team if you know that they're already hobbled...

They would be a Ferrari based team using Ferrari engines. They need to be in Touring cars or Sports cars

I'd love to see them running in the WEC and/or IMSA but the costs would be more than F1

Hopefully not

Please not. Alfa must come back as a potential world champion, not an also-ran

Ha... When last in F1 or Indy they were nothing. They cannot expect to beat Mercedes, Redbull or Ferrari or even Haas! Will not happen.
