It's believed that Ferrari had been pressing for another of their development drivers, Antonio Giovinazzi, to take the race seat.

Charles Leclerc has admitted his delight at moving up into Formula 1 in 2018 with the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team after being signed alongside Marcus Ericsson. Instead, the Italian will be Sauber's third driver, effectively meaning he is in a reserve role.

With this confirmation, just one seat remains on the F1 grid for 2018 as Williams continues to consider who will replace Felipe Massa and partner Lance Stroll next year. He was speaking in Milan at an event marking the launch of Sauber's new partnership with Alfa Romeo.

Sauber will have closer ties with Ferrari next season through the deal with Alfa Romeo. He is clearly deserving of a shot in Formula One.

Both the A5 and A7 will share all of the same internal specs, but the latter will have larger 6-inch Infinity Display. Samsung's very own foldable phone idea has been around for quite some time but it hasn't b en implemented still.


Marchionne added that the partnership would also strengthen his hand in talks with Formula One about the sport's future and warned that the deal could end in 2021 if Ferrari chose to walk away as they have threatened. "I think the guns are loaded in a different way". "First and foremost, I would like to thank Ferrari for their support".

Charles Leclerc, 20, will make his Formula One debut as a full-time driver in the 2018 season driving for Sauber.

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.
