Ferrari has reached a multi-year agreement to become Sauber’s Formula One engine supplier.

Sauber has currently been using one-year-old Ferrari engines, but the team will compete with new engines in 2018.

The Swiss Team will be fitted with the power units built at the Scuderia Ferrari Maranello factory in Italy. The deal was announced a day after Sauber announced it had pulled the plug on a deal with Honda.

“This cooperation, which was initially started back in 1997, has allowed the Sauber F1 Team and Ferrari to enjoy a productive collaboration for a total of 17 years,” a statement from the Sauber F1 team said.

“The shared experience between the Sauber F1 Team and Ferrari has built a strong foundation, which will allow us to move forward swiftly and efficiently, also in terms of the development of the 2018 car. I am convinced that together we can achieve the results which reflect the passion and determination that is, and always has been, behind the Sauber F1 Team,” Frédéric Vasseur said, team principal of the Sauber F1 team.
