The 22-year-old will partner Swede Marcus Ericsson at the Swiss outfit who are currently suffering their worst season in the sport since they joined the grid in 1993.

Today’s announcement means Sauber’s current drivers, Adrian Sutil and Esteban Gutiérrez, are currently without a seat for next year.

Nasr has appeared for Williams in four F1 Friday morning practice sessions this season in Bahrain (13th quickest), China (13th), Spain (14th) and at the most recent Grand Prix in the U.S. (8th).

So far in his racing career Nasr has won the 2009 Formula BMW Europe and 2011 British Formula Three titles. He graduated to the GP2 Series in 2012 with DAMS and has spent the last two seasons with Carlin.

This season has been Nasr’s most successful in the feeder series, with victories in the Austrian feature race and the sprint races in Spain, England and Belgium.

He currently uses the number 40.
