A Ferrari insider has revealed that Alfa Romeo may leave F1.

Leo Turrini, a long-time F1 journalist with key sources at Ferrari, wrote on his Quotidiano blog about speculation that F1's Swiss team, recently known as Sauber, could soon lose its key Alfa Romeo backing.

"Alfa Romeo being in F1 was the great idea of the deceased Sergio Marchionne, but unfortunately, sales of the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio have not been exciting," he said.

Which means Alfa Romeo may not have the money to remain in F1 much longer.
