Well, money is everything. No money, no developments and no fun.

I was expecting a much stronger Sauber in Canada but they have been nowwhere. It seems that the Ferrari PU unit is not enough for them now if they dont update the car.

I thought Ted's Notebook said they didn't have the updated Ferrari PU?

That is correct. They won't get it until they introduce their major upgrades package or they are up for another engine change. So dont expect anything before the summer brake.

Ferrari introduced the engine upgrade off sequence; their second engine should have lasted them atleast till end of race 10

Soonest Sauber would take the new upgraded engine (without having to pay for the 5th unit) would be round 11 and then 16 (by when the second set of upgrades would be ready)

What ever happened with Sutil's lawsuit against Sauber? I know he was seeking money rather than a seat.

He and his father-in-law now own a big chunk of Sauber.

Interesting, do you have a source for that?

I think that both drives are not doing a bad job so I agree with this.
