Dessert Alfa Romeo: is their best ever season coming?

Will Alfa Romeo finish better in the constructors championship ever before? It is possible this year!

The car looks handy and over this year and last can sneak into Q3. Do they plateau here at 6th in the constructors? Or do improve or slip down the order?

The drivers are handy, the engine is decent. Do they need a bit more time to develop from the sad low point Sauber were in a few tears ago?

* there was no WCC when Alfa were dominating in the ‘50s, so the best they’ve done is 6th in 1983.
* Sauber managed a 2nd and 3rd in WCC with BMW. 2nd was with the Mclaren disqualification in 2007.

While run by BMW, Sauber finished 2nd in the constructors in 2007 (plus Mclaren's exclusion that year) and genuinely 3rd the following year.

Different levels of manu involment back then to now so perhaps unfair to compare these two Sauber eras..

I think OP 's memory needs to extend a little further back . He might find that 1950/51 were not bad years at all for Alfa Romeo .They also did rather well back in the days when it was purely Grand Prix racing, not Formula 1 .

10 points for remembering (I read it in a book) that Alfa dominated the world championship in the first two years. Minus 20 for not making the WCC connection.

Last year, when Sauber, I don’t remember them tailing off towards the end of the year. Just checking and they scored well in the last four races. They did have a poor mid season points wise. Only netted 8th overall.

Racing point and Renault looks like can be beaten this year...
