In 2026, the Sauber team, now operating under the Alfa Romeo brand, will switch to Audi power plants and become the German automaker’s works team. The press is already discussing possible candidates for a seat in Sauber-Audi, and Carlos Sainz even had to refute rumors about his move to Hinvil.
This time, at the suggestion of Sauber Group General Manager Alessandro Alunni Bravi, the press drew attention to Fernando Alonso and named him one of the candidates for a place in the team.
“I am ready to sign a contract with Fernando, even if he is 45 years old or more,” says Alessandro Alunni Bravi. “I got to know him well at McLaren when I was manager of Stoffel Vandorn. I saw his work first hand day after day and I can say that Fernando has great abilities and he is totally dedicated to the cause.
Alonso is a champion. It is impossible to win two titles in Formula 1 without having certain qualities. I like to watch his performances.
I am happy with our current drivers, but I can only admit that Fernando is one of the best Formula 1 drivers.”
