SA Alfa Romeo or Alfa Romeo SpA[edit]

I've seen in the 1950 and 1951 season entry list that the Alfa Romeo entrant is listed as 'SA Alfa Romeo'. However, forix.autosport.com lists the entrant as 'Alfa Romeo SpA'. I reckon the latter is correct, since 'SpA' is Italian, while 'SA' is, among others, French. The article 'S.A. (corporation)' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.A._%28corporation%29) mentions the same.

There seems to be some disagreement: gpracing.net192 and Sheldon and Rabagliati's "Black Books" say "SA Alfa(-)Romeo", whereas, as you point out, Forix says "Alfa Romeo SpA". -- DH85868993 11:14, 14 June 2007 (UTC)
I see. I checked some Italian Wikipedia pages, too: http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giuseppe_Farina mentions 'Alfa Romeo SpA', too, though the 1950 Formula 1 Season page talks about 'Scuderia Alfa Romeo'. But that could just be plain Italian for 'the Alfa Romeo stable' and not the team's name.

Bots exclusion template[edit]

This article has the bots exclusion template ( {{bots}} {{#if:$deny|with arguments $1 ) applied to it. This template should generally be a temporary fix until the article or bot can be changed, to resolve the underlying problem. Please explain here why the template is being used so that the article or bot can be fixed if possible.Rich Farmbrough, 16:21 7 September 2008 (GMT).

OK looks like an interwiki problem. I'd like to try a fix, let me know if the problem recurs. Rich Farmbrough, 21:09 7 September 2008 (GMT).
I'm trying again, I have revised, I believe, all the foreign language interwikis. Rich Farmbrough, 12:48 13 September 2008 (GMT).
I'm leaving the bots tempoate for a few days, just in case someone reverts on the German WP. Rich Farmbrough, 12:53 13 September 2008 (GMT).

Peter de Klerk[edit]

Do de Klerk's entries in the 1963 and 65 South African GPs count for Alfa? Because the articles for both races link to here, but there is no mention of him in the article. Thanks. WilliamF1two (talk) 17:16, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
