Peter Sauber believes only a minority in the F1 community are against the current format, with some journalists having critisised the randomness of 2012. Furthermore, the Team Principal is convinced that fans are thoroughly enjoying the excitement.
“As far as I can see, it’s just a handful of people in the paddock who can’t get used to not knowing by Friday who’s going to win on Sunday,” says Sauber, who has already scored more points after seven races than he had across the whole 2011 season.
“I think the fans see it in a completely different light. They’re delighted with the unpredictability, the sheer variety and the unbelievably close competition.
“I’ve been in Formula 1 for 20 years now and for me it’s never been better or more exciting. That’s partly down to Pirelli, who are supplying the tyres for this show.”
As an independent, Sauber has picked up two podium finishes and as many fastest race laps this year, having never achieved the latter in his 15 previous seasons as a private team owner.
