AUTOSPORT.com reports that Ferrari protege Charles Leclerc is one of the contenders for the role of the reserve pilot Sauber in 2017.
The GP3 champion of 2016 took part in four training sessions as part of Haas last year. It is likely that he will continue to work in the us team, but the final decision is still pending.
At the same time, the Sauber is actively looking for a third pilot because of a back injury by Pascal Wehrlein, who was forced to miss the first block of pre-season tests in Barcelona, when his cockpit C36 replaced Antonio Giovinazzi.
Today, Wehrlein is back in the Sauber and is his first test day as part of the Swiss team.
Recall that Giovinazzi will serve as a backup pilot Ferrari in 2017.
As for LeClair, then in 2017 he will defend the colors of Prema in GP2.
