is still scrambling to secure its future, according to the latest reports. The Swiss team has now announced that Adrian Sutil
is replacing the Force India
-bound Nico Hulkenberg
in 2014. But Sauber said late on Friday: "The second driver will be announced at a later date."
So what happened to the much-vaunted Russian rescue deal, where the Russian teen Sergey Sirotkin
was set to be in the Swiss-made cockpit? According to the well-connected correspondent for the Swiss newspaper Blick, Roger Benoit, Sauber is now looking into working with a new group of investors. Reportedly, the unnamed group visited Sauber's Hinwil factory last week. "They want to take over the team and install new management," said Benoit.
Benoit revealed that, a year ago, an investor group headed by 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen
expressed interest in buying Sauber. "Kimi was just the middleman," confirmed team founder Peter Sauber
, who brought the Finn into F1 as a rookie in 2001. (GMM)
