F1: Alfa Romeo change F1 team name and logo for 2022

Alfa Romeo’s F1 team entry name will be tweaked for the 2022 season.

Formerly Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN, the team’s official entry name for this year will be Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN.

ORLEN are a Polish petroleum company and oil refiner that are Alfa Romeo’s F1 title sponsors, on the back of Robert Kubica’s involvement as a test and reserve driver.

The name change has already occurred, as has the launch of the new team logo.

“The launch of an updated name represents a new approach for the team, just as the sport enters a brave new era with its new regulations,” read a short statement from the team.

“While, at the same time, preserving the links to the recent past: it’s an identity that conveys a strong statement of commitment from the team’s title partners, Alfa Romeo and ORLEN, which remain with the team in long-term relationships and continue to push the team forward.

The change will also be reflected in the chassis name submitted to the FIA – Alfa Romeo Racing to Alfa Romeo.
