Despite the stronger links to Ferrari, the Italian manufacturer was unable to get its way, with Sauber confirming Leclerc and Ericsson at its launch on Saturday.

The news was announced Saturday as the team's Formula One vehicle was also unveiled with it's slick red and white colouring with a prominent Alfa Romeo logo.

"I am happy to be able to say that the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 team will also give young drivers the chance to show what they can do", Marchionne said.

Ericsson failed to score a single point in the 2017 F1 season while his team-mate Pascal Wehrlein managed five only to lose his race-seat.

The Swiss Formula One outfit Alfa Romeo Sauber have confirmed that Sweden's Marcus Ericsson and young Frenchman Charles Leclerc will compete for the world title in their rebranded vehicle in 2018.

Giovinazzi will stay as the team's back-up driver and it remains to be seen if Wehrlein moves to Williams - the only remaining team with a vacancy. He is clearly deserving of a shot in Formula One.

"I believe today is a special moment not only for us but for all of Italy", Marchionne said. Next year's auto will also be equipped with Ferrari power units.

The significance of Alfa Romeo's return to the sport was highlighted by the presence of F1 chairman Chase Carey and FIA president Jean Todt.

The multi-year deal includes strategic, commercial and technological cooperation, enhancing an arrangement that already included use of the latest specification Ferrari engine.
