    Just another way of Ferrari bending the rules to its own ends , more development feedback.
    Ferrari pulls the strings at Fiat, as done for a long time Alfa is were Ferrari mad is name .
    But since Ferrari became part of Fiat it has made sure its racing funding is above every other band under the same brand. this has left Lancia & Alfa in the background for a long time now.
    Little more than re-branding with out teeth Alfa are no going to be a top team .
    The only marks that could take the battle to Mercedes , are Porsche & Audi or one of the other makes that VW own like Lamborghini , but I do not see that one VW are still in recovery mode after the scandle.

    FIAT own Ferrari.
    How could Ferrari possibly pull the strings? FIAT is Ferrari!

    Really wish they'd have given Giovinazzi the seat instead of Ericsson.

    Good to hear old brand names are going to return in 2018. Now, it's time to believe Sauber is going to do a competitive car, altough is very improbable.

    Maybe they'll sneakily replace him mid-season when he doesn't deliver.

    Either Ericsson has a watertight, expensive-to-pry-open contract or his sponsors are funding so much that Ferr...err Alfa just cant ignore it. Either way, keeping Ericsson is a wierd decision.

    Sauber designed the car, Ferrari is putting the engines, Alfa Romeo the stickers.
    I guess they are planning to launch Alfa in the graphic design industry. :whistling:

    Hopefully it means Sauber can get more competitive. If that happens, I dont care what name they have. I still think Ericsson dosent belong, but if he proves me wrong, I'll gladly eat my words again, he is a Scandinavian afterall :)
