Kaltenborn becomes patron for F1 in Schools
27 October 2012 – Sauber Team Principal Monisha Kaltenborn has become an official supporter of the F1 in Schools initiative ahead of this weekend’s Indian Grand Prix. The concept aims to help students and budding engineers to make the step towards working in the sport.
“I’m delighted to see that F1 in Schools is now launching its programme in India, not only because I have Indian roots but also because of the growing importance of this country,” says Kaltenborn, Team Principal successor of Peter Sauber.
“I’m sure there are many Indian students who are keen to participate. There is so much talent in this country and I’m pleased that I was given the opportunity to support this programme. As a member of the Women in Motorsport Commission, I would be particularly pleased to see this programme attract more girls and women to become involved in motorsport in the long-term.”
