Sauber previously raced as a sportscar team before making its F1 debut in 1993, impressing from the get-go. They continued that decent run of form into the next few seasons before struggling in 1999 with Jean Alesi and Pedro Diniz at the wheel of the tricky C18.
The small team finished fourth in the 2001 constructors standings before settling back into the back of the mid-field for the next few seasons. BMW investment helped the team make progress in 2006 before hitting the front in 2007. They scored their first race win at the 2008 Canadian Grand Prix thanks to Robert Kubica before BMW pulled out of the sport at the end of 2009.
Returning to the ‘Sauber F1 Team’ moniker in 2010, they struggled at first before finishing sixth in last years championship after a number of podium finishes for drivers Kamui Kobayashi and Sergio Perez. This season the C32 has proved to be a tricky car to master and financial problems have seen the team slip back.
