Is Alfa Romeo back on the racetrack?

The legendary Italian car brand, Alfa Romeo, is expected to return to the racetrack by participating in a new project of the International Automobile Federation FIA.

The FIE Sports Council has given the green light to hold the F2 Championship, which is set to be an intermediate stage between the existing F3 and Formula One. A more detailed idea for the Formula Two project will be presented to the Sports Council in July, after which the hunt for promoters will begin, although it is not yet known when the championship will take place.

The planning of the new racing series fell to former Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali, who is also chairman of the FIA's Open Cab Racing Committee. In the championship, all racing cars will be made by one manufacturer, and sources from Italy claim that Ferrari has already had its hands on the idea that non-hybrid six-cylinder powertrains from Maranello, which are supposed to carry the Alfa Romeo badge, will be buzzing in them.

Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne made it clear last year that he wanted to put Alfa in the spotlight in the future. "Our international production network will focus in particular on the Alfa Romeo brand, which will represent the best that Italy has to offer."

Alfa Romeo first competed on the racetrack in 1911, winning the first two Formula One design championship titles. However, since the brand said goodbye to the touring car championship about ten years ago, it has not been represented in motorsport.

Marchionne began implementing its plan as early as the start of the Formula One season, as the Alfa logos appeared on Ferrari’s race car this year.
