Sauber to show support for Japan

我々の祈り、日本に届きますように。- or 'May our prayers reach the people of Japan - to feature on the Sauber F1 cars for Australian Grand Prix
Sauber has announced that it will carry a message of support to the Japanese people during the opening round of the new F1 season in Australia.

The team will race at Albert Park with 我々の祈り、日本に届きますように。on the cars of both Kamui Kobayashi and Sergio Perez, with the message translating as 'May our prayers reach the people of Japan'.

While Kobayashi's home city Amagasaki escaped the worst of the earthquake that struck last week, the resulting tsunami has caused devastating damage in the north east of the country and left thousands of people dead.

“It is difficult to find the right words to express our emotions and feelings, but silence means we can't even begin imagine how to try,” team boss Peter Sauber said. “We can hardly believe what we are seeing.

“Our thoughts are with the people in Japan. We hope they will have the necessary strength to overcome these circumstances of extreme adversity.”

mickym, sorry mate sport is not the forum to get across any political message, it would easily become a slippery slope. However, a humanitarian gesture for people affected by a NATURAL disaster is completely different and Sauber are to be applauded. As are the crowds at tonights soccer games with their one minute silence.
