Despite rumours that it may switch to Peugeot power, Sauber appears more likely to stick with what it has for another season.

The Swiss team was, along with Minardi, connected to a supply of former Peugeot works units, which are rumoured to be on offer from Asian Motor techniques [AMT] in 2001 but, in the absence of confirmation that the engines would be available in time, looks set to continue with its year-old Ferrari supply.

''Nothing is fixed yet,'' admitted team boss Peter Sauber, ''but it is likely that we will continue our partnership [with Ferrari] for another one or two years. I think it is in the interest of both parties.''

Mika Salo added to his Y2K points tally in Monaco, taking his C19 to fifth place ahead of McLaren's Mika Hakkinen. The two-point reward was added to his sixth place at Imola, and was a third top six finish for the Finn, including the sixth spot he lost to an infringement in Australia.
