Cape Town - As rumours persist that Sauber could run Ferrari junior drivers in 2018, Marcus Ericsson says his team are talking to "a few other teams, including Williams."

Ericsson is potentially facing the loss of his Formula 1 drive as reports claim Sauber could become a sort of junior team for engine supplier Ferrari, and the place where the Scuderia blood their young drivers. 

As such Ericsson, who has yet to score a point this season, is keeping his options open with his management speaking with several teams. 

He told Swedish publication Expressen: "There are many rumours right now. 

"I know that my managers are in touch with Sauber and a few other teams, including Williams. 

"We will see what will happen in the coming weeks, but it's an exciting time." 

Pushed on his chances of remaining in F1, he replied: "You can never be sure, but that's the goal, to drive in Formula 1 next season."
