What’s the big reveal? Well, it’s a bit of a mystery. But the rumor mill suggests it’s about Sauber. The word on the street is that Alfa Romeo will officially include Sauber in its name. The exact team name? That’s still under wraps. But we’ll know soon enough.

Alfa Romeo’s putting its money where its mouth is

They’ve been playing coy for a while now. “We’ve been teasing you for a long time. The countdown is finally on,” they posted on X.

How’d they fare in the Formula 1 season? Not too shabby. Alfa Romeo racked up 16 points. Six were thanks to Guanyu Zhou, and Valtteri Bottas contributed 10.

Will Sauber up the game in 2024? Only time will tell.
