    I think it was a sad affair Nico being dumped by Williams. And, I’ve always felt Force India was a team with a dubious future long term. So, I think Sauber is the ideal place where Nico can really finally have a worthy chance to invest himself and establish his career. I’m going to be very happy for him if this turns out to be true!
