The deal of Sauber with Russian companies has been in news since long and if the same materializes, this could very well end Sauber’s financial problems by paving the way to sponsor deals.
Sauber team boss Monisha Kaltenborn told Blick newspaper, “I understand that people want to know more because until now we have not said so much.” However she has further assured that things have been moving in the right direction.
Kaltenborn further shoed optimism when she said, “I hope that in this season, we will see new sponsor logos on the car.” This sounds a great news for the team and race lovers but still what we do not know is how far is this true and how much time it will take to materialize the deal between the two.
However one thing is sure that, if the Russian teen Sergey Sirotkin is able to secure a super license, he will be racing a Sauber in 2014. But the newspaper also reports that Sauber’s current lead driver, the Ferrari and Lotus-linked Nico Hulkenberg, will definitely not be Sirotkin’s teammate.
All we can hope is that the team is able to get the deal go through at the earliest for the benefit of all and that we can see the team in next year’s race also with some new faces and probably new logos.
