For several weeks there has been talk in the paddock about the F1 about the imminent sale of Alfa Romeo Racing. Looks are pointed at the former American pilot Michael Andretti, who is interested in being part of the Maximum category motivated by the change of regulation that promotes cost reduction.
According to an article published in Motorsport, Andretti "He is eager to add an F.1 team to his structure", who already participates IndyCar, Indy lights, IMSA, Formula E, supercars y Extreme E, and everything points to the operation "It could be approved in a matter of weeks."
The English website suggests that everything is in the hands of the company Islero Investments, which since 2016 is the owner of the Alfa Romeo team, actually run by Sauber.
Asked about the future of the team, Frederic Vasseur, its director, preferred not to talk about something that does not concern him, although he did not deny the possibility either ... "I can not say anything because honestly it is not my area", the team-manager told Autpsport.
“I am the CEO and director of the team and these types of conversations are not with me, they would be with the shareholders. We have so many rumors and others that we must ask the question of the shareholders of the company ”, He added.
Sources have suggested that Andretti has been attracted to F.1 due to the move into a new era of rules starting in 2022, with a more level playing field between teams and the continued possibility of cooperation between manufacturers and customer teams ”, reported the British website.
