Sauber F1 Team History

Sauber F1 Team History

Kimi Raikkonen Sauber C20 Monaco 2001

Raikkonen in Sauber C20 (2001)

In 1993 Suisse car owner Peter Sauber saw his dream come true when his Sauber team were admitted into Formula One. At last the popular owner had a Formula One car with his name splashed down the sides. His team have rarely threatened at the front of the grid, their only major challenge came in 2008 when they were called BMW Sauber, but Sauber are one of the more popular teams on the gird.

There forte has always been blooding young drivers. World Champion Kimi Raikkonen and race winner Felipe Massa have both started their careers with Sauber, while in recent years talented youngsters Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez have been given a chance. The team has always enjoyed a friendly relationship with Ferrari, who encourages their novices such as Massa to gain experience with the team.

Sauber have mainly been the ultimate midfield team with the odd podium here and there and consistently finish about 7th in the constructor’s standings. However when BMW came in 2006 they had the wish to win the title. With star driver Robert Kubica driving for them the team was in the hunt for the 2008 world championship, with Kubica winning the teams only ever race in Canada. Ultimately he fell short of winning the title as Lewis Hamilton and McLaren won , but it seemed a positive stride had been taken by the team.

However just a year later BMW announced their withdrawal from the sport and sold their share back to founder Peter Sauber. The team retook its original name and, unfortunately, retook its position back in the middle of the pack. Financial problems have arisen for Sauber and they have been forced to sign young drivers who bring in lucrative sponsorship. Their future in the sport is unclear, but everyone will be pulling for one of the grids most popular teams.
