Pascal Picci has spoken about the issues that made him step down from the position of the Sauber chairman.

Details:

  • Picci is one of those who helped save Sauber in 2016 and then worked as the Sauber chairman.
  • He announced that he would leave the role ahead of the Mexican GP.
  • Picci admits that he does not want to cooperate with the Alfa Romeo team principal Frederic Vasseur anymore.

What he had to say:

  • “I do not want to be associated with the management of Fred Vasseur in the future,” Picci told the Italian edition of Motorsport.com.
  • “The way in which the drivers were chosen was one of the points that broke the table between me and the current management.”
  • “I am sorry that Antonio [Giovinazzi] is no longer here, and I am happy that Zhou will arrive. I have known the Chinese youngster and also his family ever since we wanted to take him to the Sauber Driver Academy, as well as [evaluate] the commercial opportunities that he can open up.”
