Sauber unveils concept 2018 Alfa Romeo livery

Formula Two champion Leclerc, who is a product of Ferrari's junior program, had been expected to make the step up to F1, and it was confirmed that Ericsson will retain his seat.

However, Ericsson's future had been in doubt after he ended the season as the only driver to compete in every race without scoring a point.

The 20-year-old from Monaco, a member of the Ferrari Driver Academy, will take Pascal Wehrlein's place behind the wheel next season as Sauber team up with Alfa Romeo.

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

Even before he put his teenage years behind him back in October, he had always been the favorite to get this ride, and now it's official.

White Victoria Secret Angels Face Backlash For Singing The N-Word
Some people took a dim view of the models using the n-word, no matter how unintentional it apparently was. Requests for comment made to Victoria's Secret, Cardi B and Kloss were not returned by publication time.

Saturday's event showed off a new red and white livery, with Alfa Romeo branding prominent on the engine cover, and a redesigned logo.

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

The Alfa Romeo name last appeared in F1 in 1985, although its biggest achievements came during the series' first two years, when Giuseppe "Nino" Farina and Juan Manuel Fangio won the 1950 and 1951 titles, respectively.

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

Alfa Romeo will return to the sport after an absence of 30 years as Sauber's title sponsor, with the Swiss team strengthening its Ferrari ties, having cancelled its planned Honda partnership.
