Italy’s Antonio Giovinazzi will be Sauber’s driver for the 2019 season alongside former world champion Kimi Raikkonen, the team announced on Tuesday.

Giovinazzi, who is currently the team’s reserve driver, made his Formula One debut last year by starting two races replacing an injured Pascal Wehrlein.

“I am delighted to join the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 team. It’s a dream come true and a great pleasure to have the opportunity to compete for this team,” said Giovinazzi.

Giovinazzi, 24, was competing to be Sauber’s second driver with Marcus Ericsson, who will stay in the team as a reserve driver, the team said on his Twitter account.

“As an Italian, it is a great honour for me to represent such an emblematic and successful brand like Alfa Romeo in our sport… I’m very motivated and I can’t wait to start working to achieve great results together,” he added.
