Renault, by the way, have not issued a statement confirming their intention to race in F1 like Merc and Toyota did. Third big manufacturer after Honda and BMW to leave?

2009 is turning out to be a terrible year for F1. Thanks to the amazing rules that put KERS in the limelight for 2009 season. The big 3 sadly worked on KERS while the rest of the pack kept on tinkering with the Aero packs since there wasn't anything to do. The results now look like lucky draws!

With all the money blown on KERS & you standing 8th in the line I am sure the Board is not very happy. Sadly, racing blood is not the criteria to sit in the 4 cylinder building & call the shots. Bye Bye BMW Sauber. I so much wished that you gave it just another try.

Funny thing about KERS & BMW is, BMW was the only manufacturer who did NOT oppose KERS last year.

And they've abandoned the regenerative system altogether

how much "Indian" will that consortium be? the most talked topic has been about how much "indian" Force India really is, So, we could possibly pose the same question here too.

but is Flavio Briatore headed the Ron Dennis way?

A group of Indian investors have made an offer to buy the BMW Sauber team.
BMW announced that it will pull out of Formula One at the end of year due to the costs of competing and a lack of results.
However, team boss Mario Theissen has vowed to continue developing the team to attract new investors and ensure the survival of the Hinwil and Munich outfit.
That lifeline could come from an Indian consortium, according to a report by the Times of India.
“Indian investors have made an application to purchase the BMW-Sauber team,” the newspaper quoted unnamed sources as saying.
The group is believed to have placed an offer of around 50 million euros and the deal would see the arrival of Swiss driver Neel Jani, who currently features in the A1 GP series and whose father is Indian.
However, Theissen has confirmed that there are other potential buyers.
“There are several interested parties and we are just about to evaluate the individual proposals,” he explained.

Default Now - Sauber Ferrari F1 Team

So the FIA have finally confirmed that Sauber will fill the last and only available slot on the F1 grid for the 2010 season. This means that its the end to the rumors that Toyota may sell the team to an interested buyer. A real pity for the Toyota employees in Cologne, which has 800 workers. Though I am happy to see Sauber as they have been here since 1993. So 2 more F1 seats available now.

Mods: I guess we can change the title of this thread.

Yes Peter Sauber is back with the Sauber F1 team becoming indipendant again . The engine would be a Ferrari unit and we can expect Heidfield to be driving if he fails to get a Merc seat .
