Leclerc and Ericsson to race for Sauber in…

  • Drivers Marcus Ericsson of Sweden and Charles Leclerc of Monaco unveil the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 team car on the occasion of its official presentation in Arese Italy on Saturday. The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team will compete in the 2018 Formula One W

"For now I'm a Ferrari fan, but if Alfa Romeo Sauber do well that would of course be very welcome", Marchionne said.

Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne says the threat that the Italian team could leave Formula One is a "serious" one.

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.

Ferrari is the only team to have competed in every F1 season since its inauguration in 1950.


"We have to find a solution which is good for the sport, but we also have to be clear on the things we can't back down on".

The new Alfa Romeo Sauber Formula One Team vehicle during its official presentation at the Alfa Romeo Historical Museum in Arese, near Milan.

Marchionne's main bone of contention with the prospective 2021 engine rules is the inclusion of standardised parts as a means of dropping the cost of the sport's future power unit. Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull - who have considerably larger budgets - have dominated in recent years but Liberty are keen to ensure that doesn't continue with money being split more evenly.

Ferrari now receives more revenue from F1 than any other team thanks to a bonus for its commitment to the sport that no other outfit receives.
