- Sauber could have Ferrari engines till the end of 2025
- Ferrari has had Sauber as a engine customer since 2010
- Ferrari's ties with Alfa Romeo also help cement that Ferrari deal
Sauber has been preparing the development of its 2022 chassis which will likely be designed for the Ferrari 2022 power unit. Ferrari F1 boss Mattia Binotto has already said that he expects the 2021 Ferrari power unit to not to be the least powerful engine on the grid.
At the same time, Sauber's boss Frederic Vasseur has said the Alfa Romeo partnership is central to Sauber staying in F1. Even though Ferrari is not a part of Stellantis, it is still controlled mostly by the Agnelli family with John Elkan who also is the chairman and CEO of Ferrari which could ensure that the relationship continues.
This relationship also leads to a good testbed for the Ferrari driver academy drivers to graduate to F1, just the way Charles Leclerc started off with Sauber and then graduated to Ferrari and Antonio Giovinazzi joined the team. Mick Schumacher has recently joined the Haas team which is also a Ferrari customer.
