A long shared history already unites us and we are fully committed to continuing this from 2013. Nico’s success has already been followed with great enthusiasm by DEKRA management and staff all over the world since his rookie season in 2010. And we are convinced that he will cause even more of a sensation having switched to the Sauber F1 team.” (Sauber) Subbed by AJN.
