Sauber unveils concept 2018 Alfa Romeo livery

FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne delivers his speech on the occasion of the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team official presentation in Arese Italy Saturday Dec. 2 2017. The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team will compete in the 2018 Formula 1 World Championship

As for Ericsson, the Swede was in a battle with Antonio Giovinazzi for the second seat before Sauber opted to stick with what they know. The Italian auto manufacturer is making a return to the sport after 30-years to sponsor the team.

With his ties to Ferrari through the Ferrari Driver Academy in addition to his confirmed role as a full-time driver for Sauber, the team that signed a technical partnership with Ferrari for 2018, in his rookie Formula One season, Leclerc is among the lead candidates to replace Kimi Raikkonen at Ferrari in the 2019 season. During the event, a previous generation F1 auto was unveiled featuring a red and white livery and a prominent Alfa Romeo badge (above, with Leclerc and Ericsson). Even before he put his teenage years behind him back in October, he had always been the favorite to get this ride, and now it's official.

Wehrlein, who won five points in 2017, is left without a seat, with Williams the only team left with an opening following Felipe Massa's retirement.

Having used a year-old power unit this season, next year will see Sauber running the latest specification in a deal that has since been extended to the Alfa Romeo partnership.




Fiat Chrysler have invested billions of euros since 2014 to develop new Alfa Romeo models that would stand up against German premium rivals and shed a reputation for poor quality and service that has hit sales in the past decade.

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

Formula One chairman Chase Carey and former Ferrari boss Jean Todt, president of the governing FIA, both attended the presentation.
