ARESE, Italy – Formula E champion Charles Leclerc will move up to Formula 1 with Alfa Romeo-backed Sauber for the 2018 season.

Marcus Ericcson will remain on the drivers’ list  despite scoring zero points through 2017.

The announcement, according to Reuters, was made by Fiat Chrysler’s chief executive Sergio Marchionne on Saturday (Dec 2 2017)  at a presentation of Alfa Romeo’s new partnership with the Swiss team at the Italian brand’s museum near Milan.
