Kaltenborn no interest in Ecclestone’s job

Dec.7 (GMM) Sauber team boss Monisha Kaltenborn has rejected reports that she could eventually replace long standing Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone.

India-born Austrian Kaltenborn, 41, was initially just a lawyer for the Swiss F1 one team. She was eventually appointed to the board, named chief executive, and recently given a one-third ownership and in 2012 took over as team boss.

And amid Ecclestone’s troubles with the Gerhard Gribkowsky corruption affair, it has been rumoured that the next big step for Kaltenborn could be the F1 chief executive’s job.

“There is nothing to it,” she told German television SWR.

“I wouldn’t want to do it. When I think that Bernie deals not only with one but with twelve teams, then I have plenty of goals [that] I want to achieve with Sauber.”

    MK is one smart woman and F1 would be the better for having more like her at the operational level. Another kudo to Peter Sauber for his astute judgement to bring her along in his organisation.
