What next for Sauber?

Sauber to miss the post-Barcelona test: http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/124096/sauber-to-miss-barcelona-f1-test

It's not looking good for the team. To miss out on a vital in-season test reeks of desperation. Will they make it to Abu Dhabi?

Rather depressingly, the reason they give (apart from the one we think) for missing it is that have nothing new to test, so this means they will slip even further back.

It's not looking good. On track performance is not good as it is, and that is without the tenths that the teams around them who are developing their cars will no doubt find.

Surely they are ripe for the takeover, if anyone has money to burn. Come on Alfa Romeo, put some money into their account and paint the cars red.

At least they're upgrading to the latest spec Ferrari engines in Spain. That should help a bit. But they're still scrapping with Manor and Renault for back of the pack.

I also think it would be better to replace Kaltenborn. A new team principal perhaps send out more trust for investors.
But the main problem: Time is over for privste F1 teams.

Amazing they can't find a young driver to pay to test! Need someone new in charge

I am not sure if you are joking or not, but I will play along.

Steps...

1. Sign up any number of pay test drivers. The more the better.
2. Promise them that they will move up to race drivers next season.
3. Profit!

Oh wait, they already tried that.

Haas-Alfa tie up is more likely. Who would buy them as the first thing you would need to do is relocate the team (probably to the UK) where it would be cheaper to operate, have a bigger pool of engineering talent and ready supply chain, they are out on a limb in Switzerland.

I hope Sauber stay, they've always been proper racers, especially Peter, but it seems that they need a major sponsor or more likely a manufacturer

Time to bump this thread up. Still languishing at the pointless end of the table with Manor, and neither of their drivers looking like a superstar. They seem to have fended off financial collapse for the time being, but missing the Barcelona test was a really bad sign. Will they see out the year?
