How Ferrari's other protege came back from rock bottom
As Charles Leclerc steps into Ferrari following a stellar Formula 1 rookie season and a string of junior single-seater titles, his Sauber replacement Antonio Giovinazzi gets his big break via a very different path.

Giovinazzi has been placed at Sauber by Ferrari in another impressive show of faith in young talent by the Maranello team.
