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.

Alfa Romeo has joined up with the Sauber team for a return to Formula One after an absence of more than 30 years.

"I am very happy to be entering Formula One in 2018", said the rook.

Leclerc, who turned 20 in October and is from Monaco, became the youngest F2 champion last season, dominating the title race and eventually winning by 72 points.

Ericsson failed to score a single point in the 2017 F1 season while his team-mate Pascal Wehrlein managed five only to lose his race-seat.

The auto is predominantly white with red accents, and large Alfa Romeo logos after the Swiss team confirmed a deal with the manufacturer.

Marchionne, who is also chairman of Sauber's engine suppliers Ferrari, has made the title sponsorship of Sauber part of his reshaping of the FCA-owned Alfa Romeo brand.

Sauber will field Ferrari-backed Formula 2 champion Charles Leclerc alongside incumbent Marcus Ericsson, with the Scuderia's reserve driver Antonio Giovinazzi set to take up a third driver role.

"I believe today is a special moment not only for us but for all of Italy", Marchionne said.

The multi-year deal includes strategic, commercial and technological cooperation, enhancing an arrangement that already included use of the latest specification Ferrari engine.
