Sauber confirms Charles Leclerc and Marcus Ericsson as 2018 race line-up

With Sauber teaming up with Alfa Romeo ahead of the 2018 championship, Leclerc was widely tipped to take one of the two Sauber race-seats.

The announcement was made by Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne on Saturday.

Meanwhile, in terms of drivers, the Swiss team are retaining the services of Marcus Ericsson, but are replacing Pascal Wehrlein with the services of Charles Leclerc.

But there had been doubts about Ericsson's roles, despite the fact that his personal sponsors are also involved in Longbow Finance, the group that bought out Sauber in 2016.

Despite the stronger links to Ferrari, the Italian manufacturer was unable to get its way, with Sauber confirming Leclerc and Ericsson at its launch on Saturday.

These are particularly high tides that can influence the oceans and raise sea level by a number of inches. Here's a cool look at a supermoon from NASA in November of 2016 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.


Giovinazzi, who served as Ferrari's third driver in 2017, has two Sauber race outings to his name, the Italian having stood in for the injured Wehrlein at this season's two opening rounds, with a best finish of 12th in Australia.

"The motor we use will be the same one Ferrari use", Marchionne said.

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

"It's an incredible opportunity for me but also for the team", said Ericsson, whose financial support has always been linked to Rausing and the Tetra Laval packaging group.

Fiat bought Alfa, whose iconic red Spider 1600 was driven by Dustin Hoffman in the 1967 cult film "The Graduate", in 1986, but several previous attempts at reviving the brand have stalled.
