Crazy crazy crazy. No wonder he looks so f***ing pleased. Sauber has been out of the game too long. He wanted an experienced driver? He'd have got that with Heidfeld or Fisi, with the bonus that those two are actually good drivers. I mean, good luck to the guy, but Koba will kick his a**.

big big mistake, good luck to pedro, but should of gone with fisi or nick, they have been racing the past few years, pedro has only been testing and not much at that, this all boils down to money again, dont think sauber will do much this year even with ferrari engines, on a good note good to see sauber back, but dont think they can afford a good driver, when they can have a cheap driver, business makes scence, and thats what f1 is these days a business. but good luck to both partys, good to see more teams in f1, just more tailenders to overtake.

Pedro de la Rosa as No 1 makes no sence at all - unless it's sponsorship that has dictated the choice! Quick Nick or Fisi are miles ahead of P dl R in terms of pure speed and "current car" experience. I cannot see Sauber being anything other than tail-enders for 2010.... Shame to think that this was a race winning, title challenging team only 2 seasons ago... Looks like DTM for Heidfield and Italian TV commentary for Fisi then!
