F1 » van der Garde wins seat as Sauber appeal rejected


If Sauber had a case to keep VDG out of the car, they'd have made it. Why would they not counter with a "breech of contract" claim if there was one and not the pathetic "it is not safe for him to drive" claim if they actually had a case. Apparently they do not have a case. The judges/courts agree that Sauber is wrong and VDG is correct. What is the secret knowledge that some folks here seem to have that was not available to Sauber, MK or the judges & courts?

F1 » van der Garde wins seat as Sauber appeal rejected


retsieMneger: The person I think we should all be sorry for is Peter Sauber who has been a committed racer and kept the team together through all the struggles with BMW etc. It must be heartbreaker for him. I know this won't resolve anything presently except that perhaps, if he still has the energy he could step back in and get some sort of better of resolution than currently appears possible.
This is my feeling as well as I have expressed in other threads. I feel very bad for Peter. It is his name that is getting all the bad press and he is a man who deserves better. Still, I cannot imagine that, at some point, he did not ask MK what the heck she was doing.

F1 » van der Garde wins seat as Sauber appeal rejected


Stevros:
cecedecat:It is very selfish of Geido to insist on his drive if it means they cannot carry on with business. If they will not be strapped for cash, then I feel more kindly about what he has done.
Giedo chose not to have a race seat last year, because of a promise he got ensuring him of a drive this year in a more competitive car. Sauber would have folded last year without his sponsors backing. Caterham may still exist as he brought more money than Koybayashi last year. So basically Sauber lied to Giedo to ensure they stayed in business at potentially another teams expense. The ONLY people to blame are Sauber for signing 3 drivers.
Well put.

F1 » Sauber appeal against van der Garde court decision


richard:
mytyresaregoingoff: This is not a personal attack but MK needs to go.
that IS a personal attack! i doubt very much if it was monikas personal negotiations or fault that the problem arose. contracts etc would be handled by a law firm designated by sauber to arrange these. it is very easy to try and pin the blame on one person, especially when she is a woman and probably had absolutely nothing to do with it!
We need a superduper disagree button. Playing the gender card? That's just wrong.
