Sauber extends Ferrari engine deal

Sauber announces a new 'multi-year' engine deal with Ferrari from 2014 onwards
Sauber has confirmed an extension of its engine deal with Ferrari into the 2014 season.

The Swiss team has revealed that terms have been agreed on a 'multi-year agreement' that will see it continue to make us of Ferrari's full powertrain, which includes engine, gearbox and energy recovery systems.

Sauber has a long history with Ferrari having used the Italian manufacturer's engines both before and after it was taken over by BMW for four seasons.

“We are pleased to extend our technical partnership with Ferrari taking Sauber into the new era of engines that starts in 2014,” team boss Monisha Kaltenborn said. “Ferrari has been a long standing partner of the team, first from 1997 to 2005 and then again from 2010 onwards.

“We are proud to extend our relationship with such a prestigious and renowned brand and look forward to entering the 2014 season with a strong and reliable partner like Ferrari.”

Sauber joins Marussia as a Ferrari customer team for 2014, leaving Lotus as the only team on the grid still to confirm its engine deal for the introduction of the new 1.6 litre turbo-charged units.

The Enstone-based team is expected to remain with Renault however alongside Red Bull, Caterham and Toro Rosso, with the remaining four teams all using Mercedes power.

I hope Sauber stay around. They are a great breeding ground for new talent. Really I would have liked to see Jules Bianci move here. That would have probably help cut the Ferrari bill as well.
