The Swiss based F1 squad, Sauber F1 had opted for a new look line-up in 2015, race drivers and a new test, reserve driver. Marcus Ericsson and GP2 driver Felipe Nasr, will race for Sauber next season.

Both 2014 Sauber F1 drivers Esteban Gutiérrez and Adrian Sutil were quit from the team, after all season struggle.

Italian Raffaele Marciello, part of Ferrari’s Driver Academy, has been appointed Sauber’s test and reserve driver for 2015.

The Mexican Esteban Gutiérrez has since gone on to secure a seat with Ferrari as their reserve driver, while Sutil has not found a drive for 2015 to-date.

“We are pleased to announce Raffaele Marciello as our test and reserve driver for the 2015 season,’ said Sauber team boss Monisha Kaltenborn.

‘He proved his great talent in junior formulas, and his season in the European Formula 3 Championship with 13 wins and the title victory was particularly impressive.

‘We will give Raffaele the opportunity to become familiar with Formula 1, which also includes him taking part in some free practice sessions on Friday. It’s great for our team to be part of his way to Formula 1.”
