Vasseur was named on Wednesday to replace Monisha Kaltenborn, the sport’s first female principal, who left the Swiss-based team on June 21.

‘We are delighted to announce the appointment of Frederic Vasseur as managing director and CEO of Sauber Motorsport AG, as well as team principal of the Sauber F1 Team, effective July 17,’ Sauber said in a statement.

‘I very much look forward to complementing the team with my experience and determination and drive all people in the right direction in everything they do,’ Vasseur said.

He added: ‘I am convinced that all together we will achieve ambitious targets. I cannot wait to start working with our drivers, engineers and all the staff. I look forward to contributing to the next important phase in the development of the team.’
