Sauber Considering Name Change
Peter Sauber has revealed that his team are considering dropping the BMW part of their name following the German car manufacturer’s decision to pull out of the sport and sell the team back to him at the end of last season.
It was a surprise to many that eter Sauber kept the BMW part of the team name, especially considering that he is getting engines supplied by Ferrari but he has revealed he was hoping for a major sponsor to add to the team name.
“We will submit an application for a chassis name change, but the timing has yet to be decided,” he said when asked by Autosport Magazine about the naming situation.
“It will happen some time this season.”
He said that sponsors had been difficult to come by, and that he was disappointed his cars remained soley white.
“Today we are looking for sponsors for the 2011 season. I hope we will find some sponsors for this season.”
“If we find a title sponsor for 2011 in the middle of the year then maybe we can have them for this season too,” he added.
