The Sauber team have confirmed their current deal with Ferrari to supply the powertrain will be extended for a non-specific multi-year agreement. The powertrain in question includes the engine, KERS and gearbox, and team principal Monisha Kaltenborn looks forward to another few seasons of success with the manufacturer. She says: “We are pleased to extend our technical partnership with Ferrari taking Sauber into the new era of engines that starts in 2014. We are proud to extend our relationship with such a prestigious and renowned brand.”

Meanwhile, the team are hoping for another good result in Korea, after one half of the team has finished in the points for the last two races. After Friday practice, Head of Track Engineering Tom McCullough said: “Again the midfield is very tight, so this means tonight we shall have to get our heads down to make sure we get the most out of the car for qualifying. We are happy with how both drivers went and Esteban did a very good job learning the track, as obviously he’s never driven here before.”
