Sauber sack Kaltenborn as F1 boss

Sauber sack Kaltenborn as F1 boss”

Kaltenborn took up the role of team boss in 2012, becoming the first ever female Formula 1 team principal when she replaced team founder Peter Sauber, when he chose to scale back his responsibilities.

Two years later she was appointed head of Sauber's legal department, before joining its Board of Members a year later.

The team principal and chief executive has opted to leave her position after reportedly failing to agree with her colleagues on how the team should be run.

The takeover secured the team's future after years of struggling with funding following the decision by former partner BMW to quit F1 at the end of 2009.

Sauber, frequently battling financial difficulties, were sold past year to new owners.

Sauber have only four points in the season's constructors' standings and are second last, above only McLaren.

A major update to the C36 is believed to be on its way in time for this year's British Grand Prix, and Kaltenborn had been optimistic about the potential that would bring going forward.

Sources have suggested one of the issues was the treatment of the outfit's drivers Marcus Ericsson and Pascal Wehrlein.

Sauber is yet to officially confirm Kaltenborn's departure, while ex-Hispania F1 team principal and managing director Colin Kolles has been linked with filling the role.
