Sauber confirm Leclerc & Ericsson, as Alfa Romeo livery revealed”

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 final piece of the puzzle fell into place during Abu Dhabi's post-season tests, when it confirmed a title partnership deal with Alfa Romeo - bringing the legendary Italian marquee back to F1 after a 33-year absence.

Marcus Ericsson will stay at Sauber next year for the 2018 Formula 1 world championship.

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

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.

Ferrari-backed Leclerc, from Monaco, had been expected to get the drive. He was speaking in Milan at an event marking the launch of Sauber's new partnership with Alfa Romeo.

Sauber has unveiled its concept livery for the 2018 Formula 1 season, in the wake of its collaboration with FCA brand Alfa Romeo.

The 38-year-old Raikkonen signed a third straight one-year deal to remain with Ferrari through 2018, but a return in 2019 on a fourth consecutive one-year deal isn't overwhelmingly likely.

"Formula One is the natural reference point for a marque like this", he said.

The news was announced Saturday as the team's Formula One auto was also unveiled with it's slick red and white colouring with a prominent Alfa Romeo logo.
