Sauber will carry a message on their cars in Melbourne as a gesture to the Japanese people following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit the country on Friday.

The message in Japanese is translated as “May our prayers reach the people of Japan”.

The team have particularly strong links with the country through driver Kamui Kobayashi, but the whole of the sport has been shocked and stunned by the scale of this tragedy.

“It is difficult to find the right words to express our emotions and feelings, but silence means we can't even begin imagine how to try,” said Team Principal Peter Sauber. “We can hardly believe what we are seeing. Our thoughts are with the people in Japan. We hope they will have the necessary strength to overcome these circumstances of extreme adversity.”
