Sauber (Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team to be exact) has announced it will become Alfa Romeo F1 team for next year. It will still be owned by Sauber Motorsport, but it'll be referred to as Alfa Romeo.

What does everyone think about this? I like the idea of Alfa Romeo returning but disappointed to see the Sauber name go, especially since there are a low amount of privateers left. Also AR will basically be a Ferrari junior team so that's not something to get massively excited about.

Changes happen all of the time with everything in life. At least we have the 2019 season of Formula 1 with Sauber Motorsport, then the change will happen next year, in 2020.

@F1Fan1 sorry I should have said the name is changing this year as in 2019.
