Peter Sauber Smile

Hurrah! Great news!

The Sauber Formula 1 team will remain in Formula 1 after being awarded the 13th entry in the championship, the FIA confirmed on Thursday evening. The team, when owned by BMW, did not enter the 2010 Formula 1 season at first but BMW came to an agreement with former owner Peter Sauber to continue the team.

The team will be effectively taking the place of the outgoing Toyota F1 team, with  the Japanese car manufacturer deciding to pull the plug at the end of the 2009 season.

It’s great to see the Sauber name will remain and that common sense has prevailed to keep it there!
