Sauber unveils concept 2018 Alfa Romeo livery

Sauber unveils concept 2018 Alfa Romeo livery

The newly rebranded Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 team has announced its 2018 driver lineup will consist of Charles Leclerc and Marcus Ericsson. He also drove for the team in the post-season Abu Dhabi tyre test.

The new paint scheme is in line with Alfa-Romeo's corporate colors and features a large Alfa-Romeo logo on a red engine cover.

Ericsson will stay on with the Sauber team for a fourth season, but hasn't scored with them since the Italian Grand Prix in 2015, with his best result in 2017 coming in the Spanish and Azerbaijan Grand Prix when he finished eleventh in both races.

Antonio Giovinazzi, another Ferrari product, will be the team's third driver. The announcement was made by Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne in Milan, Italy Saturday as the new partnership with Alfa-Romeo was launched. Instead, the Italian will be Sauber's third driver, effectively meaning he is in a reserve role.

The decision leaves German driver Pascal Wehrlein, Ericsson's team mate this year, facing an uncertain future with former champions Williams the only remaining team with a vacancy.

The Swede accumulated nine points in his maiden season with the team but has failed to score a point since.

But Mercedes boss Toto Wolff admitted at the Abu Dhabi GP that there was only a "tiny possibility" of the 23-year-old joining the Grove-based team, with Robert Kubica the leading candidate to be Lance Stroll's team-mate in 2018 following Felipe Massa's retirement. Kubica and Williams' reserve driver Paul Di Resta also tested their 2014 vehicle at the Hungaroring in October as the team assessed their options.
