RACE DEBRIEF

    Sauber are the latest team to announce a launch date for their 2018 car, with an online presentation of their Ferrari-powered C37 to take place later next month.

    The Swiss squad – now officially named Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team following their recent tie-up with the Italian car maker – will field Marcus Ericsson and newcomer Charles Leclerc in the re-liveried C37.

    It’s a combination Sauber hope will enable a step forward for the team, after a disappointing 2017 campaign in which they scored just five points on their way to tenth place in the standings.

    Confirmed 2018 launch dates: Williams - February 15 Sauber - February 20 Mercedes - February 22 Ferrari - February 22 McLaren - February 23
