Sauber confirm Leclerc & Ericsson, as Alfa Romeo livery revealed


The driver line-up was confirmed by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne during a launch event of the new Alfa Romeo Sauber partnership - announced earlier this week - in Milan.

Formula 2 champion Charles Leclerc will drive for the Alfa Romeo-backed Sauber team next season alongside Sweden's Marcus Ericsson.

Charles Leclerc, 20, will make his Formula One debut as a full-time driver in the 2018 season driving for Sauber.

Leclerc test drove for Scuderia Ferrari and Haas in Formula One cars last season, and he test drove again for the former this past season in addition to test driving for Sauber, the team for which he will be driving competitively in a full-time role next year.

They have linked up with Alfa Romeo, who will become their title sponsor, for the 2018 season in a deal that marks a return to F1 for the Italian firm after a 30-year absence. He is clearly deserving of a shot in Formula One. That was promptly followed by a deal with Ferrari for 2018.

Ferrari's late founder Enzo also started out racing and managing a team for Alfa Romeo, before setting up on his own in the late 1930s.
