Sauber

 
 
 
Sauber (officially BMW Sauber for the 2010 season) is a Swiss motorsports constructor, currently involved in the Formula One World Championship. It was founded in the 1970s by Peter Sauber, who progressed through hillclimbing and the World Sportscar Championship to reach Formula One in 1993.

Since the 1970s, Peter Sauber built sports cars. After using turbocharged Mercedes V8 engines in the 1980s, his team became the official factory team of Mercedes-Benz, reviving the Silver Arrow legend. The first Sauber car, C1, was built in 1970. Sauber, in partnership with Mercedes, won the Le Mans 24 hour race in 1989 and the world sports car championship in 1989 and 1990 with the Sauber C9, competing against Jaguar and Porsche.

The team was sold to BMW in 2005, and competed as BMW Sauber from 2006 to 2009. At the end of the 2009 season, however, BMW pulled out of Formula One and the team was sold back to Peter Sauber and granted a 2010 entry.
