Peter Sauber is sure there will be no cultural clash between his formula one team and new owner BMW. The Swiss, to leave motor sport after 36 years but remain as a hands-off 'advisor' for sponsors, sees 'no reason to worry' about a clash of Sauber-BMW personality.
BMW's six-year works collaboration with British team Williams has famously ended for that very reason -- and an unseemly spat between Mario Theissen and Patrick Head is the persisting evidence.
Sauber revealed that there are 'a number of Germans' already working away at Hinwil. ''They've settled in well,'' he said. ''Where there definitely could be some friction is the challenge of merging a medium-sized operation into a large company. The attitude will have to change - the new team is no longer a little David who stands up to the big guys once in a while.''
The Sauber team will also be no magic bullet for German carmaker BMW, Peter Sauber warned. He cited Williams, having a 'hard time' catching the leaders even with BMW power.
