Motorsport: Marciello named Sauber reserve

Italian Raffaele Marciello has been named
Sauber's test and reserve driver for next season.
The 20-year-old won the European F3
championship last year and is a member of
Ferrari's driver academy.
"We will give Raffaele the opportunity to become
familiar with Formula 1, which also includes him
taking part in some free practice sessions," said
team boss Monisha Kaltenborn.
Marcus Ericsson and Felipe Nasr will be Sauber's
race drivers in 2014.
Marciello, who will race in Formula 1's feeder
series GP2 next year alongside his Sauber duties,
got his first taste of a Formula 1 car last month,
when he tested with Ferrari in Abu Dhabi.
"I really think that this is the best choice for my
future career," said Marciello, who started his
racing career in karting in 2005.
