Williams and Sauber have announced that they will pull the covers off their 2024 F1 contenders at season launch events to be held on February 5.

The two teams took to social media late on Friday to share with fans their “save the date” happenings.

Williams and Sauber follow Ferrari which became the first team last week to unveil its launch plans, with the Scuderia scheduled to roll out its 2024 car into the limelight on February 13.

Williams - whose line-up will consist once again of Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant - offered no details about its launch, whether it would showcase its genuine 2024 car or renders of its charger as has been the case in the past.

As for Sauber, team representative Alessandro Alunni Bravi recently told the media that the Swiss outfit will unveil its car at an event held in the UK.

Upon the conclusion of its partnership with Alfa Romeo, Sauber has adopted a new name, officially christened 'Stake F1 Team Kick Sauber' in recognition of its two major sponsors.

However, the Hinwil-based team has hinted at the possibility of further changes to its name on January 1, 2024.

Like Williams, Sauber's line-up remains unchanged for 2024, with the team entrusting its cars once to Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu.
