Ever since Peter Sauber forged a Formula 1 team in 1993, the Swiss squad has continued to be a part of the sport despite not establishing itself as a frontrunner. It has potential though, a lot of it. A quality which BMW recognised and formed a partnership which gave the outfit its first win in F1, although the statistic has been credited to the alliance rather than Sauber's independent efforts. So when BMW withdraw from F1, it was left for Peter to not only rescue it but continue to sustain its existence. This wasn't new. Sauber had stepped into the highest echelons of motorsport credited to its tie-up with Mercedes. Always the underdog, over the last few seasons however it has established as a strong mid-field contender and is also known for seeking out talent. Just ask Kimi Raikkonen, Felipe Massa and Sergio Perez. Now under the aegis of the first woman team principal in the sport, Monisha Kaltenborn, Sauber has unrelentingly rolled on season after season and with its recent growth on the track, it may just spring a surprise in the results anytime.
