Sergey Sirotkin on Friday confirmed reports that he has signed a real contract to drive for Sauber in 2014.

Austrian reports on Thursday said that team boss Monisha Kaltenborn had confirmed at Spa-Francorchamps that the Russian teenager has finally signed the deal.

Earlier, amid Sauber’s crucial Russian rescue deal, Sirotkin’s place at Sauber for 2014 was merely an ambition. He is yet to secure an FIA super license.

“I’m a Sauber driver in Formula 1 for 2014! Thank you all for your congratulations,” the 17-year-old wrote on the Russian social network Vkontakte on Friday. (GMM)

    ok, i think the whole story is typical for where F1 is nowadays.
    It is really not a sport anymore, it is a cold-investment-war of engineering. :D

    I watch GP2/3 (a.o) for the racing, F1 is just entertainment, nothing more, nothing less.

    What a joke F1 has become. When this spoiled kid gets someone injured or killed on the track how his daddy going to cover those losses. He is only a middle fielder in the lower championship he is in. F1 has just become fascicle.
