Peter Sauber
Im Alter von 23 Jahren fuhr der gelernte Elektromonteur sein erstes Autorennen auf einem getunten VW Käfer. Drei Jahre später baute er seinen ersten eigenen Rennwagen, den C1, mit dem er Schweizer Sportwagen-Meister wurde. Nach diesem Erfolg konzentrierte er sich ganz auf den Bau der Fahrzeuge und überliess das Fahren anderen. Er gründete die Sauber Rennsport AG mit dem Ziel, Sportwagen zu bauen. Peter Sauber ist wohl einer der besten Talentsucher für Jugendfahrer. Viele aktuelle und ehemalige Spitzenfahrer saßen am Anfang ihrer Rennfahrerkarriere in einem Sauber-Cockpit, darunter Michael Schumacher, Heinz-Harald Frentzen, Nick Heidfeld, Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Räikkönen und Felipe Massa.
Peter Sauber (born 13 October 1943) is a retired Swiss motorsport executive. He was the team principal and owner of various motorsports teams, most visibly the eponymous Sauber Formula One team. After being trained as an electrician Sauber became a car salesman in Hinwil, Switzerland. This was Sauber's first real association with automobiles and it proved to be the catalyst for his involvement in motor-racing. Sauber's motorsport connection was somewhat paradoxical, given that racing in his native land had been banned after the Le Mans tragedy of 1955. However, he still managed to compete in hillclimbing events in the Volkswagen Beetle he had purchased and thus the foundations for his first project as a team owner were laid. After opting not to run the family traffic light business, Peter built the Sauber C1 (the C stands for Christiane, the name of Peter Sauber's wife) in his parents' basement. It was a car of tubular frame, powered by a 1-litre Ford Cosworth engine. In the summer of 1991 Harvey Postlethwaite joined the team to design an F1 car and Mercedes funded a vast new factory at Hinwil. The company began buying old Ferrari engines and rebadging them as Sauber Petronas V10s but the F1 engine program itself was scrapped in 1998. In the later years of this period Sauber saw increased success with the team finishing fourth in the World Championship in 2001 and fifth in 2002 despite having a much smaller budget than many of its rivals.
