Alfa Romeo nei nostri cuori

26 Nov 2023

The partnership between Alfa Romeo and Sauber Motorsport in Formula 1 comes to an end at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.  

In 2018 after more than 30 years of absence, Alfa Romeo returned with impetus to the highest levels of motorsport, as part of a strategic, commercial and technological partnership. Six years of fruitful and passionate collaboration between two companies, Alfa Romeo and Sauber Motorsport, true leading lights in the history of Formula 1.

It is now time to thank everyone who has shared these unforgettable years with Alfa Romeo. A special thought to the late Sergio Marchionne, who strongly desired this pairing and determinedly supported the partnership in 2018.

A massive thank you to the drivers, in chronological order: Charles Leclerc, Marcus Ericsson, Antonio Giovinazzi, Kimi Räikkönen, Zhou Guanyu and Valtteri Bottas, who have all battled for the team over the past six years.

A heartfelt thank you and a round of applause to the entire Sauber Team, starting with Finn Rausing, most of all Fred Vasseur but also Alunni Bravi and Andreas Siedl, for their constant, passionate and professional collaboration.

We are much obliged to all the team's partners for their support throughout. First and foremost, to Ferrari for their supply of the power units. A special mention and big thanks go to Alfa Romeo's partners: Adler, Ferrari Trento, Marelli, Pirelli, Sabelt, and Web Eyewear. And warm congratulations to the tire supplier Pirelli, for their precious contribution.

Sincere thanks to the FIA and its President Mohammed Ben Sulayem for their support. Plaudits to F1 and its CEO Stefano Domenicali for what they are doing for the sport, continuing to attract the attention of millions of fans to the world of racing with dedication, and for their constant openness to Alfa Romeo.

Heartfelt thanks to all the supporters and fans in the amazing Alfa Romeo TRIBE, who since 1910 have demonstrated their visceral passion in their support for the brand, an icon of noble Italian sportsmanship all over the world. Warm thanks to all the passionate journalists, professionals and communication specialists.

Last but not least, we wish our competitors a future full of great sporting successes.

New Aston Martin Vantage GT3 to fight for glory on Nürburgring 24 Hours debut

New Aston Martin Vantage GT3 to fight for glory on Nürburgring 24 Hours debut

Aston Martin will rekindle its long and glorious relationship with the fearsome Nürburgring Nordschleife this weekend as the new Aston Martin Vantage GT3 makes its debut in the ADAC Ravenol 24H Nürburgring.

The British ultra-luxury sportscar manufacturer has enjoyed a winning tradition at the Nürburgring for more than 60 years. Indeed, iconic Grand Prix legends Tony Brooks (GBR), Sir Stirling Moss (GBR) and Sir Jack Brabham (AUS) all contributed to a hat-trick of 1000km victories for Aston Martin in the late 1950s, including the 1959 edition that helped to secure the World Sports Car championship crown for the brand. That triumph took place in the same year Aston Martin’s DBR1 claimed its famous overall victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 92nd running of which will be held next month, on 15-16 June, in France.

Six Porsche 911 GT3 R battle for overall victory on the Nordschleife

Six Porsche 911 GT3 R battle for overall victory on the Nordschleife

Porsche’s customer teams and the 911 GT3 R have already given a demonstration of their force in the so-called 'Qualifiers' in mid-April. Falken Motorsports celebrated two victories, while Manthey EMA finished both races on the podium. Moreover, Dinamic GT, Lionspeed GP and Herberth Motorsport will each field one ca. 415 kW (565 PS) GT3 racer from Weissach.

“We began preparing for 2024 straight after last year’s 24-hour race,” said Sebastian Golz, Project Manager Porsche 911 GT3 R.

“We worked hard alongside the manufacturers to understand last year’s tyre damage. After in-depth analyses, we applied the appropriate measures. The start of the 2024 season showed that we did a good job together. Our teams and drivers are happy with the vehicle balance. Now we need to sort out the race procedures and focus on getting through the race without making any mistakes. Lap time performance alone is not the main priority. Teamwork, managing overtaking in a big field of 130 cars, the right tyre choice for different conditions and ensuring that the driver feels good in the car will be the keys to success.”

The commitment of Porsche customer teams goes far beyond participation in the top SP9 class for GT3 vehicles. Thirty-nine other racing cars from the German manufacturer are registered in ten different classes. This means that Porsche has by far the largest contingent of entries in the race. The most popular model is the 911 GT3 Cup, 14 of which will compete in the dedicated Cup2 category.

“Porsche is again clearly the most well-represented brand at the Nürburgring 24-hour race this year. This shows that we continue to enjoy high trust among our partners and customers and that our products are well established on the market,” said Michael Dreiser, Director Sales Porsche Motorsport.

“I’m confident that the six Porsche 911 GT3 R will perform strongly against the tough competition in the top SP9 class. The customer teams are extremely professional with first-class drivers crewing all the cars. Our customers will undoubtedly deliver some gripping racing in other categories too, like in the fiercely competitive Cup2 class with the 911 GT3 Cup and the Cup3 class with the 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport.”
