Alfa Romeo could be the next big name on the F1 grid – Marchionne

Alfa Romeo’s Formula 1 return is still on the agenda of Ferrari president and FIAT CEO Sergio Marchionne, but plans have not been officially confirmed yet.

Marchionne has said repeatedly in recent times that Alfa Romeo could be the next big name on the grid, but when asked if he was joking he insisted: “No, it’s a real project.

“First we have to make some money with Alfa and then we will try to enter. Remember, we have more success with that brand than a lot of people who are already here,” he said.

Asked if Alfa Romeo would be a mere branding or sponsorship exercise, Marchionne said: “No, no, I think of a commitment as a team. We have the history and the ability.

“And we have our cousins here (Ferrari) that can lend a hand. Instead of helping others, or while they help others, they can help Alfa as well,” he added.
