Sauber close to new sponsor deal

By on Monday, April 18, 2011

Apr.18 (GMM) Sauber is close to signing yet another new sponsor to the Swiss team.

Following the departure of owner BMW at the end of 2009, Hinwil based Sauber struggled through last season with a livery mainly uncluttered by sponsor logos.

The situation is vastly different in 2011, with the heavily backed Sergio Perez bringing a raft of Mexican backers, while other names including NEC and Asia Jet are also on the new C30.

Swiss newspaper Blick said yet another sponsor is coming soon.

"We are close to signing the contract," confirmed team boss Peter Sauber.
