Marcus Ericsson: 16 million euros for Sauber?

As reported by the Swiss newspaper Blick, Marcus Ericsson will occupy a cockpit at Sauber in the 2015 season. This season the Swede made his debut season in Formula 1 for the Caterham team, which had run into financial difficulties. Although the team from Leafield is now managed by the insolvency administrators and does not compete in Austin, the 24-year-old from Kumla is with the US -GP on site to look around for new employers, as he himself emphasized.

Ericsson said on Thursday: “I believe in the good in life, so I am also convinced that an opportunity will open up for me. Ups and downs are part of the job. But I don't yet know where my path will lead me. " The Formula 1 rookie is generously supported by an anonymous donor. He is said to have bought the Sauber cockpit for 2015 for around 16 million euros.

It is not clear which of the two current regular Sauber drivers Adrian Sutil and Esteban Gutiérrez will no longer compete for the Swiss racing team next year. Sutil announced in the middle of the season that he was not planning a team change. His manager Manfred Zimmermann told SPEEDWEEK.com: "Adrian has a very good option for next year, a team change is not planned."

Gutiérrez, on the other hand, has already indicated that he could imagine a Formula 1 future without Sauber. The 23-year-old Mexican, who finished 20th in the overall ranking this year without a World Cup point, can count on a generous dowry from his donors.
