All Road Management is proud to announce the debut of its driver Charles Leclerc with the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 team for the 2018 season. The reigning FIA Formula 2 Champion, the young prodigy from Monaco has convinced the Swiss team to give him the opportunity to participate in several free practice sessions at the last F1 Grand Prix of the season. Frédéric Vasseur, the Team Principal, hailed the remarkable rise of Charles Leclerc through the various series – from FR 2.0 to F2 through to F3 and GP3 – as well as his professionalism and charisma.
Charles Leclerc: “I am very happy to be entering F1 next season. First and foremost, I want to thank Ferrari for their support and Sauber for their trust. Of course, Nicolas Todt and All Road Management have very effectively accompanied my progress in single-seaters to the highest level. I am delighted to join the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team in 2018. The team gave me the opportunity to drive in a few FP1 sessions and to perform tyre tests in a Sauber F1 at the end of the season. I was immediately very well received, I already appreciate the excellent working environment and I feel completely confident with them. In 2018, my goal will be to gain more experience in Formula 1 and bring as much value as possible to the team in return.”
