Some better news is finally emerging from the Sauber camp, amid a troubled 2016 campaign for the struggling Swiss team.
Sauber has been obviously counting its pennies so far this year, to the extent that salary payments to the 300 staff at Hinwil have often been delayed.
But the well-connected Swiss newspaper Blick claims ahead of the Austrian grand prix that Sauber has now caught up on every wage payment for not only May but also June.
“We are in the process of a comprehensive solution,” team boss and co-owner Monisha Kaltenborn said. “The payment of wages is part of that solution.”
Blick, whose correspondent is the highly respected and experienced Roger Benoit, did not say whether the ‘solution’ could in fact be the team’s sale.
