Ever since Peter Sauber forged a Formula One 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 withdrew 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, it established as a strong mid-field contender and is also known for seeking out talent. Just ask Kimi Raikkonen, Felipe Massa and Sergio Perez. However, the team has fared poorly recently, scoring points on occasion, and dabbing in the bottom half of the standings. Under the aegis of the first woman team principal in the sport, Monisha Kaltenborn, tough times have been plenty in recent years but considering its one of the oldest teams on the current grid, spanning tenure of over two decades, that could just be a blip. Better things should be in store for the Swiss outfit.
