BMW Sauber’s last dance

In what seems a pathetic move, a la knee-jerk fashion by BMW AG, sadly the BMW Sauber F1 Team has now run its course with its 70th and final Grand Prix race at the inaugural Abu Dabi Grand Prix.

With “Quick Nick” Heidfeld’s fifth place finish, the Team was able to leapfrog Williams for sixth in the Constructor’s Championship, as the German has been a part of Peter Sauber’s various Formula 1 incarnations for seven years and in thanks for his loyal service, Heidfeld will be presented with a current spec Sauber racecar.

Meanwhile Heidfeld’s teammate Robert Kubica, nee the “Krakow Kid” who’ll be moving to Renault next year is set to take part in his very first Rallying event in France at the end of November, where Kubica will partake In the Côte d'Azur aboard a Clio R3 (Nov. 26-29) purely for fun, claims the Pole…

Heidfeld finds it a difficult farewell

  1. A la knee jerk fashion? Where have you been Tomaso? Do you watch the news? Do you have any idea what's going on in the car business? BMW announced this early this year. BMW is doing everything they can to keep their employees' jobs andt he millions of $ spent on Formula 1 was a necesary evil decision. I'm disaponited to ssee BMW leave F1 too - but I understand.

  2. Oh I'm quite aware of the current economic conditions and the battering the world's Automotive Companies are taking... I just feel that BMW definately pulled the plug way too early and after one bad season used this to their advantage as now the team is waiting to see if they'll be given the 14th slot upon the grid or will Toyota also leave the series due to poor results?
