F1 » Mercedes dominant as Sauber, Manor skip FP1

Googolplex: Sauber presumably could have put one of their cars out there, despite the legal furore.
@ Googolplex What's going on here? JAIL TIME for Kaltenborn? Are these people for real or are they just grand standing? What's there end game?
No idea Jonesie. One radical theory is that it is part of a play by Geido's father in law to take control of the team when it collapses.

F1 » van der Garde wins seat as Sauber appeal rejected

The Crash article seems to impliedly suggest that the Court should have had regard to the financial consequences of its ruling for Sauber. Not even Sauber argued that was a relevant consideration at the Court hearing. Justice Whelan told Sauber's QC that he should stop looking at him as if he were a dill. Must have been quite a tense hearing. The Court also said that whether or not it was too dangerous for Sauber to allow GVDG to drive was a matter for the regulators of the sport, and it was not a matter that the Court could rule upon.

F1 » van der Garde wins seat as Sauber appeal rejected

107SS2009: As I said elsewhere a while ago, I might be wrong it being my personal opinion, but I am still of the opinion that GvDG will not drive for Sauiber in Australia.
Sunny, I think you may well be right. The Court has not ruled that GVDG must drive come what may, They have simply ordered that the decision of the Swiss Arbitrator that Sauber must not take steps that prevent GVDG from taking up his position as the contracted Sauber driver has to be honoured. How Sauber deal with that will be very interesting to see.

F1 » Sauber appeal against van der Garde court decision

Justice Crofts decision is no easy read. Essentially he found there was no valid ground to refuse to enforce the Arbitrators decision. He noted that the Arbitrator ordered that Sauber take no actions to deprive GVDG of his right to drive for Sauber this season, but he also said that does not mean they were required to act in a way that would create an unreasonably dangerous situation or vitiate their insurance. It will be very interesting to see what the Court of Appeal does with this.
