Despite scoring all five of the team's points for Sauber this season, Wehrlein now only has Williams as an option in F1 for 2018, with the Mercedes youngster facing a potential return to DTM.

Having used a year-old power unit this season, next year will see Sauber running the latest specification in a deal that has since been extended to the Alfa Romeo partnership.

Giovinazzi made his F1 bow this year subbing for an unwell Pascal Wehrlein in the first two races of the season.

Saturday's event showed off a new red and white livery, with Alfa Romeo branding prominent on the engine cover, and a redesigned logo.

Sauber will field Ferrari-backed Formula 2 champion Charles Leclerc alongside incumbent Marcus Ericsson, with the Scuderia's reserve driver Antonio Giovinazzi set to take up a third driver role.

Leclerc is a current member of the Ferrari Driver Academy, and he is widely considered one of the future stars of Formula One. The final piece of the puzzle fell into place during Abu Dhabi's post-season tests, when it confirmed a title partnership deal with Alfa Romeo - bringing the legendary Italian marquee back to F1 after a 33-year absence.

"Formula One is the natural reference point for a marque like this", he said.

Formula One chairman Chase Carey and former Ferrari boss Jean Todt, president of the governing FIA, both attended the presentation.
