To talk about this team, we first need to distinguish the origin of the team that is playing in F1. Alfa Romeo has been with F1 since the first years of tournament history and again in the 1980s.
It is a racing team formed from Italy, and Alfa Romeo of 2019 is based on the existing platform from Sauber, a racing team from Switzerland was founded in 1970 (then called PP Sauber AG) by the president. Peter Sauber.
He tried to overcome a number of small modalities before reaching the peak of F1 in 1993. Yet the F1 route has never been easy.
The Sauber independent race team did not have much success and was sold to BMW in 2005 and joined with the name BMW Sauber from 2006 to 2009. BMW then decided not to invest in F1 anymore, making the racing future should be uncertain, but it has been “rescued” by former boss Peter Sauber and continue his journey.
However, the name BMW Sauber was still used in 2010 due to a problem with the Concorde Treaty between FIA and F1 racing teams. By early 2019, the team was renamed Alfa Romeo Racing with the owner and management system intact.
Jordan GP of the famous F1 boss, Eddie Jordan was established and launched since the season of 1991. They achieved acceptable results with 4 victories and finished 3rd in the 1999 season with two drivers. Damon Hill and Heinz-Harald Frentzen. But like many other racing teams of that period, Jordan had a financial crisis that made it difficult to continue playing.
Since then, Eddie sold the racing team to the Midland Group in 2005, changing it to Midland F1 Racing. The team has the next two seasons often at the end of the race before owner Alex Shnaider sold the ownership to Skyper Cars in the middle of 2006.
Skyper F1 scored and even led the European GP stage at Nurburgring (Germany), but financial problems once again prevented their development.
By December 2018, the new owners of the “pink panther”, including the Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll, removed ‘Force India’ from the team name, only to become Racing Point F1 from 2019.
Haas is probably the most admired team following from the “beginnings” of history that only started in 2016. Despite having just gone through 4 seasons and 83 starting races, the team from the US has achieved many outstanding achievements.
In the first two races in Australia and Bahrain in 2016, Romain Grosjean finished 6th and 5th, respectively, the highest ranking they achieved in the first two seasons.
Finally, Mercedes, the current dominant team, made its debut in Formula 1 from the 1954-1955 season as Daimler-Benz AG. With the mighty name, Juan Manuel Fangio in the main race team, they ‘stormed’ with 9 victories in 16 races/2 years.
Unfortunately, that time only counted points and titles for individuals only. Then 2010 marked the second time, the original Mercedes racing team attended F1.
