Ruth Buscombe gained a modicum of notoriety after helping the Haas F1 team make a cracking start to their season. Two top six finishes were helped along by Buscombe, who sat on the pit wall for the American team as race strategist. She moved to a factory position before departing the team altogether and has now joined Sauber to pick up her strategist role once more.

Sauber are starting to restructure their outfit after finding investment earlier this year, and they have also hired former Toro Rosso race engineer Xevi Pujolar who joined in August as head of track engineering.

The good news continues for Sauber who have signed up a couple of new sponsors for the coming races as well, this in a commercial environment that isn’t enticing new sponsorship regularly. For Singapore, the team will run Power Semiconductor branding from their partner Silanna Group, and for both Singapore and Japan, they will have Dranix Technology on board as well.
