The team will officially be known as the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team.
A new rulebook for Formula 1 in 2017 has led to completely new designs from every constructor taking part in the sport. Here's a look at all of them.
Since entering F1, Massa competed in 242 races and won 11.
Autoblog recaps the 2015 Chinese Formula One Grand Prix. Unusual for China, it was a bright, sunny day with no chance of rain. But other than that bit of sunshine, it was not the competition we were hoping for.
A member of European Parliament has written to the European Commission, asking it to review the FIA and how the small teams in the sport are treated. The FIA appears to have breached an agreement it made with European regulators in 2001, and the F1 Strategy Group is accused of running teams and support companies out of business.
With McLaren's long-awaited confirmation of Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button, the grid for the 2015 Formula One World Championship is finally complete. (That is, at least, aside from the bankrupt Caterham and Marussia teams, whose fate for next season still remain open.) But with the big game of musical chairs now drawn to a close, not everyone who had a seat this year will have one the next. And that includes one Esteban Gutiérrez, who lost his ride with Sauber but has landed a test dri
Rookie Formula One driver Marcus Ericsson has been given a new lease on his racing life, with Sauber announcing he's been hired for next season.
UPDATE: F1 appears to have successfully blocked video footage of Bianchi's crash from appearing on YouTube, as the footage we previously had available for viewing has been pulled. You can read more about the racing series' efforts to get video providers to expunge images of the accident in our related story here.
The Formula One history books are hardly filled with female racing drivers. Maria Teresa de Felippis competed in a few grands prix in the late 1950s. Lella Lombardi remains the only woman to have scored championship points (albeit just a half of one when she finished sixth in the tragically aborted 1975 Spanish Grand Prix). Davina Galica, Desiré Wilson and Giovanna Amati all tried but failed to qualify for F1 races. Far from stellar results, then, but lately several teams have signed fema
We're not sure if it's the Robocop paint jobs or the lack of sponsors and kaleidoscopic colors, but Sauber has again managed to make the most of the regulations and put out what might be the second-best looking car we've seen so far, the C33-Ferrari, behind the black-tipped Infiniti Red Bull Racing RB10. Or it might be that we haven't been given a full-frontal glimpse yet. No matter, here we have the pre-season iteration of the Swiss outfit's Formula One challenger, powered by the 1.6-liter turb
As we put the 2013 Formula One World Championship behind us and gear up for next season, the final seats left vacant have been rapidly filling up. And the latest to confirm its driver lineup is Sauber.
The big ol' game of musical chairs that is the Formula One off season plays on as two solid drivers switch between midfield teams. First up is Sergio Perez, who moves to Force India for next season and onward. The young Mexican has been on the grid for three seasons, driving for the first two with Sauber before moving to McLaren last year. He's since been replaced at the Woking outfit by newcomer Kevin Magnussen.
Formula One fans and commentators have spent the three weeks since the Malaysian Grand Prix discussing two things more than any other: that pass, and tires. Sebastian Vettel spent days giving his tongue an Olympic workout on the verbal gymnastics parallel bars before finally admitting he passed his Infiniti Red Bull teammate Mark Webber on purpose partly for reasons of payback, partly out of a desire to win – he doesn't apologize for it and he would do it again.
Sauber Motorsports F1 has launched the most radical of this season's Formula One cars to date, its C32 getting a partially stepped nose, exceptionally narrow sidepods and a wasp-waisted rear end. Lotus F1's technical director said he expected other teams to stick with the stepped nose, but everyone else so far has opted for a vanity panel; only Sauber has even come close to keeping the step, with the step being visible from the front but the profile view being a smooth line to the cockpit.
