The Osella FA1G was a Formula 1 racing car from the Italian racing team Osella Squadra Corse , which was entered by five drivers for more than 30 races in 1985 , 1986 and 1987 and reached the finish line seven times. It was a further development of the Osella FA1F presented in 1984 and, like this, was closely related to the Alfa Romeo 183T . Together with the FA1F, it shaped Osella's image in the turbo era. Like its predecessor, the FA1G used the 1.5 liter eight-cylinder turbo engine from Alfa Romeo ( Tipo 890T ).

In the 1986 season, the Osella team only had one copy of the FA1G available. With one exception, it was consistently driven by Osella's regular driver Piercarlo Ghinzani. Ghinzani was able to qualify for every race with the car - apart from the Monaco Grand Prix ; his gap to the best qualifiers was between seven and twelve seconds. During the entire year, Ghinzani only crossed the finish line once: at the Austrian Grand Prix he finished eleventh, six laps behind. Six of his failures were due to defects in the engine and turbocharger, three to chassis problems.

Canadian Allen Berg replaced German Christian Danner from the 7th stage in Detroit. The Osella FA1G was very heavy and fragile. Berg in 9 races achieved the best result at the German GP when he came in 12th. At the end of the season, the Osella team ends the Constructors Championship in 14th without scoring points.
