Mitsubishi Electric becomes Sauber Technical partner
16 March 2011 – Sauber Motorsport has announced that a deal has been inked with Japan’s Mitsubishi Electric, with the company now becoming the Swiss team’s Technical Partner as they continue their six-year partnership. The latter will continue to equip the former with die-sinking and wire-laminating carbon components as logos appear on transporters, press releases and pit screens.
“Mitsubishi Electric has been a key partner for the past six years,” explains Team Principal Peter Sauber. “Mitsubishi Electric has already made an important technological contribution by supplying the team with eroding machines and this cooperation will now be extended to laminating robots.
“As far as I’m concerned, it is particularly valuable that this long-standing partnership has stood the test of time even during this period, which has been difficult for us.”
