F1 2019


Sauber is changing name to Alfa Romeo.

Alfa Romeo won first two F1 championships 1950 and 1951 with Farina and Fangio.
Alfa Romeo last competed in F1 1985 (1987 as engine provider).

With Antonio Giovinazzi now, the team continues tradition of having at least one Italian driver every season they've competed in F1.

Re: F1 2019


Tests are over and... we're none the wiser. Mercedes and Ferrari are still on top and perhaps even more clearly than last year. And as I said, Williams and Racing Point are at the bottom.
But everyone else are wild cards. With Honda engines, Red Bull may not be the #3 team anymore. Renault is pushing hard, Alfa Romeo has resources Sauber hasn't seen since it was BMW and I can't even guess how Haas, McLaren or Toro Rosso turn out this season.


The good news for Finland is that Kari and Laaksonen both found a place in Formula 3 series (that combines former GP3 and Euro F3).

Well that's a pretty start for the season!
Bottas finally wins again - taking the first FL point too - and Kimi picks a few points also, Alfa Romeo playing it right.


But this may not be the most fun season: Mercedes appears to dominate and overtaking... has not become easier.

First driver change of the season is Red Bull dropping Gasly to Toro Rosso and rookie Albon getting a dream opportunity to race in a top team.

Re: F1 2019


Bunch of records and statistics from Brazil GP:

- both Albon and Sainz got their first podium; also career best result for Giovinazzi
- Sainz becomes driver who had most races ever before first podium (101)
- youngest podium trio ever (previous record was from Monza 2008: Vettel-Kovalainen-Kubica)
- Red Bull did again a new pit stop record: 1.82 seconds
- best race for Alfa Romeo since their return and therefore since 80's
