Felipe Massa was ex- Sauber driver and could be in line for a comeback, although following finishing second on Sunday, his first podium since 2010 Korean Grand Prix, and many now expect him to stay.

“It has for a change nothing to do with Ferrari,” said Kaltenborn of Sauber’s options. “It’s our own decision.

“I think we are doing our own decisions and we will make our own calls and talk to who we want to. Then its up to the driver, whoever is concerned, where they want to go.”

Following the impressive race at Suzuka, Kaltenborn says that she is pleased with the final results, especially Kobayashi’s first podium in his home country.

“I can’t express how happy I am! A podium finish for Kamui in his home country is simply incredible. He did an outstanding race today, particularly in the final part when he was under huge pressure from Jenson Button.” She said

“He didn’t make the smallest mistake and defended his third position in great style. Sergio was also in a position to score a great result, but unfortunately his attack on Lewis Hamilton didn’t work out. Great compliments to the team which made progress during the whole weekend and finally delivered a great and very emotional result.”
