Alfa Romeo to return to Formula 1?

I'm all for it! Maybe they could buy out Toro Rosso?

Can I write a cheap gag about it looking great but breaking down every five minutes?

Would like to see Alfa Romeo in F1, but I doubt it.

They should be allowed to run with a 3 litre V12......probably the best sounding engine in the World ! I don't care if they come last, I just want to hear it again.

Would that be the one with the external combustion engine?

I am cynical to think that part of this is to help guarantee ongoing Ferrari/Fiat influence within F1 long term by doubling the teams they control? Especially if there is potential for the Ferrari "veto" to go away at some point in the future?

Don't have a problem with that if it means Alfa back on the grid.

WTCC safety car, that's pretty much all of their motorsport program.

IIRC they moved into DTM in the mid 90s and rather upset Mercedes plans

Would like it if they were truly an independent team instead of Ferrari puppet. Despite of the sometimes very boring races I liked the period when most of the teams made their own engines and trashed them after the weekend.

I agree they should be allowed to run a much heavier and bigger engine with more cylinders, but curiously has less power than everyone else.

I would prefer to see them in sports cars. That 4C is crying out for a GT3 conversion.

Actually, Alfa do kinda have an Motorsport program in 2016, there is an indie team running Guilias in TCR. Probably not Milan-backed though I imagine.
