Sauber are the latest team to leave FOTA
Sauber has become the latest team to drop out of the Formula One Teams Association.
The team notified FOTA several days ago, with the news becoming public today. A spokesperson has stated that the team have left for reasons “that have been fully explained to FOTA and will be kept private for now.”
In the wake of Ferrari and Red Bull’s departure from the group, this is another blow to the association that has struggled in recent times to instigate talks on the Resource Restriction Agreement.
Toro Rosso are also rumoured to be on the way out, after it was confirmed that the team did not send a representative to the latest FOTA meeting on Tuesday.
