work on the car was nearly completed before bmw withdrew. but i think that it then stopped under sauber. so to blame bmw is probably not entirely fair. also, the same ferrari engine is supplied to str, who are not having any problem, so there must be an installation gltch. in the end, it all comes down to the sauber design team, who seem to have lost direction. it would be a reasonable idea to team up with someone like ART, and so progress more rapidly.

Bad car, no money, no sponsors, underperforming drivers.........it's not looking good. Cosworth beckons. A merger with ART would be good - it would still leave the 13th slot free for Epsilon.

Surely Sauber is right with this offensive attitude. BMW just showed how poor it is itself and I'm not talking about car/development. I'm talking about having business with BMW and how they (as corporation) dealing with partners. Ferrari is so close to be corporation rather than racing team....good Kubica haven't signed anything with them. I wish Sauber as strong next season as it can be.

Poor Peter!

His car is bad, he has a lack of Sponsorship, a lack of funds, and underperforming drivers.

He should keep Kamui but drop De la Rosa, sorry pedro but you are not helping in the development of the car.

Next season Peter, get some sponsors and hire a descent driver who can develop a car i.e. Heidfeld
