At the moment it's not going to be anything.
The 147 was suggested because of its mechanical similarity to the 156, but then the 147 will shortly cease production, so the internal question is- is it worth it, considering people will remember the 156 and there Alfa sporting for a couple of years from now. Meanwhile the initial suggestion was that the 159 was not suitable for racing.
So at the moment, it looks like Alfa will not be represented by a 'works' team for a couple of years, as was the situation between the 155 and 156 in the late '90's.
