Struggling Sauber could have a valuable life line thrown to them as it was revealed that Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll is looking to buy in to the team.
Stroll who made his money in the clothing industry is believed to be looking to buy a stake the the team and currently talking with the team, despite refusal by Sauber’s Team Prinicipal Monisha Kaletenborn to comment on the matter.
Ferrari enthusiast Stroll owns the Mont Tremblant circuit in Canada and his son Lance is a member of the Ferrari Driver Academy and also races in the Italian F4 championship.
If successful, the deal is expected help to make the partnership with Sauber engine supplier Ferrari even stronger, along with providing a possible platform for his son to gain an entry in to Formula 1.
The Italian Grand Prix saw the Sauber team go another Grand Prix without scoring points, and with six races left of the season the team could be facing the prospect of no points for the first time since they entered Formula 1 in 1993.
