And now this dream is about to become a reality for me. Although I am very aware that this is also a great challenge and responsibility, I am willing to accept that and I’m proud to represent my country at the highest level of motor racing. I would like to thank Peter Sauber for the faith they have placed in me and I will do everything possible to take full advantage of this wonderful opportunity. Peter Sauber: Sergio has been on a continuous upward curve over the past years. He showed his fighting spirit in the racing throughout last season and showed that he is ready to take the step to Formula one.
