It's questionnable if it's a forward move performance wise as Sauber have had the advantage this year of being the only decent team having run without the blown diffuser for the end of the season last year. Eventhough they were still quick at Suzuka at Spa, these last few races they've dropped to a very low level, much lower than for instance FI.

If think the Interlagos track should suit the Saubers quite well so if they underperform there that's not a good sign for them.

All that said: in terms of history and being a constant factor in F1 I'd rather be at Sauber. You never know what happens with FI if Vijay runs into legal or money trouble, I think that's part of the reason for the move.

I wouldn't mind seeing Kobi at Force India next year, I think he can get podiums in a more consistent car like they have. The Sauber is really hot and cold all season and while they get the plaudits for the highs the team have been pointing the finger at the drivers for the lows, which I think is unfair.

Monisha said she expects more consistency with Hulk next year.. But if the car is like this year, he's going to be equally hot and cold.

What? The Force India is usually faster/exactly the same as the Sauber based off of qualifications. For example, the Force Indias were clearly faster than Sauber at Monaco or Singapore. It's just that Perez and Kobayashi are miles better than you and raked in more points throughout the season during actual racing and overrataking.

Kobayashi's Suzuka and Spa top row starts was something unique to him.
