Monisha Kaltenborn is new Sauber team principal

Dehradun-born Monisha Kaltenborn took over from Peter Sauber with immediate effect as the team principal of the Swiss-based Sauber F1 team. Kaltenborn had been serving as CEO of Sauber Motorsport AG since 2010 and has been a member of its management board since 2001.

She is the first woman to have ever held such a position in the largely male-dominated world of Formula 1

Earlier this May, Sauber handed over a 33.3 percent stake in the team to Kaltenborn, making her a part-owner of the team that has seen an upturn in its fortunes with Sergio Perez and Kamui Kobayashi scoring four podium finishes between them.
