I'm wondering if they need a really good engineer... or someone with great technical ability because they always seem to be "missing" something or going the wrong way with a development part etc. Maybe Monisha needs to do some "hiring & firing" ? I don't think it's the drivers to blame.

I don't rate Guttierez very highly, in fact I think he was the 2nd worst driver on the grid last year after Chilton and only a slight uptick in form plus a bag of cash from Mexico saved his seat but that being said I still agree that's not the worst of their problems this year.

Clearly the money situation hasn't allowed them to build a decent car this year and the question has to be asked how long can they keep on going running on fumes. The notion that they went better in Canada is BS, Sutil narrowly escaped being outqualified by both Marussias and in the race after the usual suspects from Marrussia, Caterham and this year Lotus retired they were in a league of their own...in a league of their own way behind all the runners who actually did have a semblance of a chance for points that is.

I do hope they can score a few points and get 9th, but with all their sponsors seemingly coming from the race and test drivers right now the future looks bleak.

Always liked this team. Peter Sauber is such a cool guy and cares so much about his team. After last year, I had such high hopes for them in 2014 but, so far, it has been very disappointing. Losing Hulkenburg probably did not help them either. The car is just simply too slow and the drivers too average.
