This isn't exactly surprising news. Her markedly increased presence in the paddock this year is sheer proof she has been groomed for the top job and to be honest she deserves it. She has been very good in her position and Sauber seem to be doing very well with her there. Am I right in saying she would also become the first female Team Prinicpal F1 has ever had? Please correct me if I'm wrong but if not, it's an achievement. Good news all round. Now re-sign Koby and sign Kovi. Would love a team of Koby and Kovi just because of those short-hand nicknames :p

Sauber F1 as contrary to popular belief has a huge backer and has the same people who worked in the BMW days building and developing Sauber's cars. Peter Sauber isn't the kind of bloke that likes to give relinquish power but seems like the real boss asked him to move over. In Monisha's interviews you can see clearly a very different mindset from Peter Sauber and in this power struggle she won.

Im sure I read an article a while back that there is something a bit odd in her background and controversial how she got into F1 and started rising so quickly
- but I didnt pay too much attention at the time so can't remember the details . .
Anyone have knowledge?
