She is the real deal and not some PR stunt. The Mrs. & I always enjoyed her gritty drives in Indycar. Looking forward to see how she fairs with the Friday sessions in the current car.

She's carrying a lot of weight on her shoulders, and Sauber expect a lot from her - but there's no doubt she has what it takes, after seeing what she could do in Indycars. I really hope she makes it and finally puts to rest the stupid preconceptions about women 'belonging' in F1. As MikeP so accurately states, this definitely is NO PR stunt. Neither Sauber, nor F1 in general need that sort of PR, so she's here on merit alone - which is more than can be said for a lot of lesser talented, moneyed drivers - like a certain P Maldonado...!
