Sauber has followed in the foot tracks of rivals Ferrari and Red Bull by announcing its plans to leave the Formula One Teams Assocation (FOTA) ahead of the 2012 season. The Swiss outfit, whose V8 engine units are currently supplied by the aforementioned Ferrari, has so far refused to publicly declare why the decision was made.
A FOTA spokesperson told GPUpdate.net: "I can for now only confirm that Sauber has indeed resigned." Despite not revealing a cause, the team's exit has almost certainly been brought on by a large dispute over the Resource Restriction Agreement (RRA).
The committee is enduring a period of massive instability, with Toro Rosso also expected to depart and reduce its overall membership total to just seven teams.
