Sauber confirm Leclerc & Ericsson, as Alfa Romeo livery revealed - Formula 1


The line-up was announced at a special press event in Milan, Italy on Saturday, where the team revealed further details of their new title sponsorship deal with Alfa Romeo, including a revised red and white livery concept for next season’s car.
 


Leclerc has risen rapidly through the single-seater ranks, winning the GP3 title last year before his F1 championship triumph this season. He first tested with Sauber’s engine suppliers Ferrari in 2016, as well as participating in four F1 Friday practice sessions with the Ferrari-powered Haas squad. This season he tested with both Ferrari and Sauber, and enjoyed another four F1 practice outings with the latter.

“I am very happy to be entering Formula One in 2018,” said the 20-year-old from Monaco. “First and foremost, I would like to thank Ferrari for their support. I would also like to thank Sauber for their trust and confidence in me as a...

Formula 1: what changes to expect from the pinnacle of motorsport ... - Autocar

In the middle of January – just 10 and a half months ago – Liberty Media took control of Formula One.

Bernie Ecclestone was named chairman emeritus, a role that meant very little. His days in charge were over. Chase Carey became the new chairman and he brought in Sean Bratches to head commercial operations and Ross Brawn to look after sporting matters.

As part of the sale process, F1 was listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange (with the ticker ‘FWONK’) and work began to reduce the company debt load and remove the former shareholders from the business. Carey is now happy with the debt levels. The share price has risen from around $26 (£20) to $38 (£29), having peaked at $41 (£31). The market seems to be confident that Liberty will do a good job.

Carey and Bratches have negotiated some new contracts, with circuits and TV companies, the organisation has moved into new offices and it has...

Lewis Hamilton: F1 champion confirms he will NEVER drive for Ferrari - Express.co.uk

The 32-year-old Brit secured the fourth World Drivers’ Championship of his F1 career at the Mexican Grand Prix in October.

And that title was the third he’s won since quitting McLaren for Mercedes ahead of the 2013 campaign.

Hamilton has been linked with a move to Ferrari in the future as he looks to overhaul Michael Schumacher’s record of seven F1 championships.

Yet the Stevenage-born racer has now reaffirmed his desire to stick with Mercedes going forwards, ending the Italian constructors' hopes of getting him on-board.

Lewis Hamilton: F1 champion SLAMS Formula E driver in deleted Instagram post - Express.co.uk

Hamilton took to the social media site in the early hours of Sunday morning to share a clip of Nicolas Prost shunting Nick Heidfeld during a Formula E race.

And he revealed just how furious Prost’s manoeuvre had made him by calling for the Frenchman, son of F1 great Alain, to be banned by the FIA.

"So I’m trying to keep an eye on other Formulas and see clips of Formula E and this one I had to post," he wrote.

Button confirms full-time Super GT programme for 2018

Jenson Button has confirmed he will race full-time in Japan next year when he enters the Super GT championship with a Honda-backed team.

2009 Formula 1 world champion Button stopped full-time grand prix racing at the end of 2016 when he stepped back from his seat at McLaren, only to make a surprise one-off return in Monaco this year.

Button stressed he did not want to return to F1 but was open to a full-season programme in 2018, either in Japan or the United States, with confirmation arriving during the Honda Thanks Day on Sunday at Motegi that he would be racing in Super GT next year in the GT500 class.

"I'll be racing for Honda and have a contract to race with Honda in Super GT in 2018," Button confirmed.

"It's been a dream for the last couple of years, I love the category. I did one race in Suzuka this year, and it got me very excited.

Ferrari Formula 1 quit threat is ‘serious’, says Marchionne

Ferrari’s threat to quit Formula 1 over Liberty Media’s future plans for the sport remains “serious”, according to chairman Sergio Marchionne.

Ferrari is the only team to have raced in every F1 season since 1950 and is the sport’s most recognisable and successful brand.

However, Marchionne said last month that Ferrari would not hesitate to exit the sport at the end of its existing contract in 2020 should it not agree with Liberty’s plans for F1, amid suggestions it could be set for a reduction in prize money.

Marchionne was present at a press conference on Saturday unveiling the new partnership between Sauber and Ferrari’s sister brand, Alfa Romeo, but said the deal was not a signal that his stance had changed.

“The dialogue has started and will continue to evolve. We have time until 2020 to find a solution which benefits Ferrari,” Marchionne said at the Alfa...

Lack of road relevance putting Michelin off F1 return

Michelin director of motorsport Pascal Couasnon says that entering Formula 1 as a tyre supplier would not make sense given the low amount of technology transfer between the track and the road.

Michelin last worked with F1 teams between 2001 and 2006, and submitted a bid to return in 2017, only to lose out to incumbent tyre supplier Pirelli.

The French manufacturer has placed a heavy significance on road relevance with its tyre development in motorsport, using endurance racing as a means of producing long-lasting, high-performance tyres.

As a result, at a time when F1 is introducing tyres with an increasingly-short life span in a bid to have multiple pit stops and improve the on-track spectacle, a return offers no appeal to Michelin director of motorsport Pascal Couasnon.

“Michelin wants to race with a challenge. Obviously when you have competition, your...

Horner doubts Ferrari will quit F1 given Alfa Romeo entry

Red Bull Formula 1 boss Christian Horner doubts Ferrari will quit the sport despite its recent threats following sister brand Alfa Romeo’s return to the grid for 2018.

Alfa Romeo will be back racing in F1 next year after 32 years away thanks to a title sponsorship agreement with Sauber, which has expanded its technical partnership with Ferrari for 2018.

Ferrari chairman Sergio Marchionne said last month the Italian manufacturer could leave F1 if the sport’s new owner, Liberty Media, had unappealing plans moving forward.

Marchionne reiterated the quit threat at a press conference on Monday unveiling the new Alfa Romeo partnership with Sauber, but Horner feels the deal is proof Ferrari remains committed to F1.

“[Alfa Romeo] come under the same management as Sergio, so I can’t believe he’d have brought Alfa Romeo in for Ferrari to be leaving in a couple of years,”...

Red Bull 'desperately' needs engine gains - Eurosport.com

The team managed to win three races this season, with two coming late in the year courtesy of Max Verstappen in Malaysia and Mexico.

Since then, however, the team's performance fell away, with its performance in Brazil compromised by needing to detune the engines.

Pushed on why things were not much better in the Abu Dhabi finale, Horner suggested that the Yas Marina circuit hurt Red Bull more because of its long straights.

"Reliability is a key issue next year, but it is also about maintaining the chassis development that we have had during the second half of the year, and we need desperately the engine to concertina in performance," said Horner.

"Brazil is power sensitive, and in Abu Dhabi you could see Mercedes were in a class of their own. If you listened to their radio content, when they turn their engines up, you only had to look at the middle sector.
