Sauber unveils concept 2018 Alfa Romeo livery

Leclerc is a current member of the Ferrari Driver Academy, and he is widely considered one of the future stars of Formula One. The Italian auto manufacturer is making a return to the sport after 30-years to sponsor the team.

Alfa Romeo Sauber has confirmed Charles Leclerc and Marcus Ericsson will race for the team in the 2018 season, as well as showing off an initial team livery.

The long-awaited announcement was made by Fiat Chrysler chief executive Sergio Marchionne at a presentation of Alfa Romeo's new partnership with the Swiss team on Saturday.

Giovinazzi will stay as the team's back-up driver and it remains to be seen if Wehrlein moves to Williams - the only remaining team with a vacancy. Instead, the Italian will be Sauber's third driver, effectively meaning he is in a reserve role. He was speaking in Milan at an event marking the launch of Sauber's new partnership with Alfa Romeo.

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