Sauber say Kobayashi is already leader
21 June, 2011
Jun.21 (GMM) While Sauber hopes Sergio Perez will return to his C30 cockpit this weekend, the Swiss team has revealed it is more than happy with Kamui Kobayashi, the occupant of the sister cockpit.
Sauber plucked Japanese driver Kobayashi from the ashes of Toyota’s F1 withdrawal at the end of 2009, following some memorable early performances for the then rookie.
He has carried over his daring style to Sauber and now has a secure place at the team, managing director Monisha Kaltenborn told Brazil’s O Estado de S.Paulo.
“We are very happy,” she said. “Kamui, in his second year of Formula 1, is already a leader. His exciting style of driving is great for the team and for the fans as well.”
