Sauber has become the fifth team to announce when it will launch its 2019 Formula 1 car.

The Swiss team will pull the covers off its new machine in the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya pit lane on the first day of pre-season testing, February 18.

Sauber will compete with a new driver line-up this year as Kimi Raikkonen returns to the team and Antonio Giovinazzi is handed a permanent race role.

The latter had started two races as an injury replacement for the team in 2017, and tested for both Scuderia Ferrari and customer Sauber last year.
