Ericsson Out, Giovinazzi In At Sauber

on

Marcus Ericsson is out at Sauber and has been replaced by Italian reserve driver, Antonio Giovinazzi, who will be joining Kimi Raikkonen for the 2019 Formula One season.

The 24-year-old Giovinazzi has only competed in two F1 races [both as a replacement for the injured Pascal Wehrlein], making his F1 debut at the 2017 Australian Grand Prix for Sauber, finishing 12th, and then retiring at the Chinese Grand Prix.

Ericsson has been demoted but will retain a seat as Sauber’s reserve driver.
