Sauber Motorsport AG is a Swiss motorsport engineering company. It was founded in 1970 by Peter Sauber, who progressed through hillclimbing and the World Sportscar Championship to reach Formula One in 1993. In 2019, following a sponsorship deal, Sauber Motorsport AG renamed their Formula One racing team to Alfa Romeo Racing after operating it under their own name from 1993 until 2018. Having not won a Grand Prix as an independent, the team was sold to BMW in 2005, competed as BMW Sauber from 2006 to 2009, scoring one victory. At the end of the 2009 season BMW pulled out of Formula One and the team's future remained uncertain for several months, until it was sold back to Peter Sauber and granted a 2010 entry. Due to issues with the Concorde Agreement, the team remained as "BMW Sauber" for the 2010 season. In March 2010, Peter Sauber announced plans to change the team name during the season, but the FIA announced that they would have to wait until the end of the season to change their name. At the beginning of the 2011 season the team dropped BMW from their name.
Until mid-2016 Peter Sauber held a controlling 66.6% stake in the team, with the remainder belonging to CEO Monisha Kaltenborn. The team was sold during the 2016 season to Swiss investment firm Longbow Finance S. A, with Pascal Picci taking over Peter Sauber's role as chairman of the board and president. Peter Sauber began building sports cars in the 1970s. After using turbocharged Mercedes V8 engines in the 1980s, his team became the official factory team of Mercedes-Benz, reviving the Silver Arrow legend, they won the 24 hours of Le Mans and the World Sports Prototype Championship, competing against Jaguar and Porsche. Among others, drivers such as Heinz-Harald Frentzen, Michael Schumacher, Karl Wendlinger, Jochen Mass, Jean-Louis Schlesser and Mauro Baldi raced for Sauber. Sauber participated in a number of other racing series before its involvement in Formula One, including the Swiss Sportscar Championship and the World Sportscar Championship; the first Sauber car, C1, was built in 1970. Sauber, in partnership with Mercedes, won the Le Mans 24-hour race in 1989 and the World Sports Prototype Championship in 1989 and 1990 with the Sauber C9 and Mercedes-Benz C11 respectively.
Sauber built a Group 5 version of the BMW M1. The first'turbo era' of Formula One ended with the 1988 season; the 1.5-litre turbocharged engines were phased out in favour of aspirated 3.5-litre engines. A massive demand for engine suppliers and a constant influx of new teams saw car manufacturers like Subaru and Lamborghini enter Formula One as engine suppliers and sometimes buying out existing teams. Other projects never progressed beyond design studies, such as one carried out by Simtek for BMW, it was a turbulent time that led to the withdrawal of many small teams and more famous marques such as Brabham and Lotus. A planned Mercedes collaboration with Sauber to enter their own Formula One team was shelved, although behind closed doors Mercedes continued to fund Sauber's Formula One project; the team was to be powered by V10 Ilmor engines in a chassis dubbed the C12, a continuation of Sauber's naming policy from sports car construction. It was to be driven by Karl Wendlinger; the car's racing debut took place in South Africa.
The car was soon turning heads not only for its sharp FW14-like lines and striking black livery but its impressive performance, claiming fifth place on its Grand Prix debut. Despite this impressive entrance to the Grand Prix scene, over the remainder of the season the team saw the finish line due to unreliability and racing accidents. However, they proved their form was not a flash in the pan recording a slow stream of points finishes and finishing outside the top ten when they completed a race distance. Despite not achieving a podium, they ended the season with twelve points, seventh out of the thirteen original entries; the team went into the 1994 season as Sauber Mercedes, now Mercedes's factory-backed team with a new car in the Sauber C13 and the Ilmor engine rebadged the Mercedes 3.5 V10. New team Pacific Grand Prix Ltd took a customer supply of more dated Ilmor units. Between seasons Lehto had signed to Mild Seven Benetton Ford. Former Sauber sports car driver Heinz-Harald Frentzen took up the role as Karl Wendlinger's teammate.
Early signs showed the team were, rather disappointingly, delivering similar performances to the previous year, scoring a small tally of points in the opening rounds. The season took a turn for the worse after a 4th place by Wendlinger following the tragic deaths of Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger at the San Marino Grand Prix. Just two weeks Wendlinger was injured after crashing in practice for the Monaco Grand Prix, he suffered serious head injuries, which left him in a coma for weeks, he was sidelined for the rest of the season. He was replaced by Andrea de Cesaris and a returning Lehto, replaced at Benetton after injury complications; the Wendlinger accident was a pivotal moment in Formula One history. Together with the death of Ayrton Senna, it prompted the mandatory implementation of head protection for drivers in the form of high cockpit sides. Sauber voluntarily pioneered prototypes of these to protect their drivers, they would finish the season with the same points tally as the previous year but finished only eighth out of the fourteen original entrants.
Mary Galway Houston was an Irish craftswoman and author. She was known for her leather repoussé metalwork, she was known for her writings on the history of costume design. Mary Galway Houston was born 27 July 1871 at Coleraine Academical Institution, County Londonderry, she was the daughter of Thomas Galway Houston, headmaster of Coleraine Academical Institution, Maud Steen Houston. She attended the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art, she exhibited leather work, repoussé metalwork and crochet designs as well as drawings at the Royal Dublin Society and at the first exhibition of the Arts and Crafts Society of Ireland in 1895. She entered the Royal College of Art in London in 1896 exhibiting with the English Arts and Crafts Society and the Royal Academy of Arts from 1901. During this time, she entered numerous national competitions, with her submissions used as illustrations in art magazines. Houston was a gold medallist for the 1898 competition to design the modelled leather cover for the Kelmscott Chaucer.
Houston became lauded for the leather work, exhibiting leather bookbindings and embossed-and-modelled leather panels from 1898 to 1903. She wrote an article on embossed and chased leatherwork in the Art Workers' Quarterly, illustrated with her set of four relief panels scenes from Homer. Houston undertook work in other media including needlework, working silver and tin in repoussé metalwork. At the 1899 English Arts and Crafts Society exhibition she exhibited an art-nouveau silver mirror-back, at the 1900 Paris exhibition with a three-piece toilet in beaten silver. All of her early work is predominantly in art nouveau, with her moving to a more Celtic style from around 1900; these Celtic designs drew on Irish myth and legend, drawing on ancient Celtic and medieval Irish prototypes. In 1900 The Studio magazine commissioned her to create two silver cups to accompany an article calling for the improvement of the design of sporting trophies and sups; this was her first attempt at metal working in the round, she drew inspiration from the Dunvegan Cup and Methers, an ancient three-handled vessel.
Though she was based in London, Houston continued to exhibit at the RDS and the annual exhibitions of the Irish Decorative Art Association. In 1903, she designed a tapestry panel of A voyage to Tir-na-noge for the Dun Emer Guild, in 1904 created a tooled leather album cover, presented to James Brenan upon his retirement. From 1903, Houston taught at the Camberwell School of Art in London. Houston developed an interest in the history of dress and costume design and went on to publish A technical history of costume in three volumes: Ancient Egyptian and Persian costumes and decorations, Ancient Greek and Byzantine costume and decoration, including Cretan costume, Medieval costume in England and France: the 13th, 14th, 15th centuries. Ancient Egyptian and Persian costumes and decorations Ancient Greek and Byzantine costume and decoration Medieval costume in England & France, the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries Ancient Egyptian, Mesopotamian & Persian costume and decoration Towards the end of her life, Houston exhibited.
Her final publication was in 1954, with a second edition of the revised and retitled Ancient Egyptian and Persian costume. It is believed. Houston's exact death date and place of death are stated to be unknown, but she appears to have died in Coleraine on 24 April 1962
