I heard there is a Russian investor interested. Fingers crossed.

 The fact that it's a Russian investor doesn't exactly inspire confidence from me, but I guess we'll see...

That's sad, and Bottas has been doing pretty well this season, even though Williams has yet to score a single point. Let's hope for the best.

This is sad to hear. This team has always provided a few upsets and usually produces great looking cars, I hope they can find the money.

Most likely Chelsea FC chairman Roman Abramowich. Considering the Chelsea logos are on the Sauber cars, would not be surprised if he ends up buying Sauber to keep them alive.

Um, did you just confuse Sauber and Williams?

Chelsea logos are on the car because Abramoviches son works with Sauber, and has little interest in football, so Abramovich became involved. It's something along those lines, but there is still a possibility that Abramovich might spare some "small change"...

But, crl, since Spain of 2012, Maldonado has been unimpressive.

Nope. He was on for at least 4th in Valencia until his collision with Hamilton, and would've been on the podium in Singapore had the car not broken down.

Maldonado and Bottas drive for Williams.

Hulkenberg and the unimportant Mex... Gutierrez drive for Sauber.

Well if NBC Sports are correct (which I will have to check with some people in Sauber), Hulkenberg no longer drives with Sauber. Pay drivers ensue...

Hulkenberg to Lotus plz. I would love to see that. It really sucks that Sauber is having financial problems. Hope they can keep going, though I wonder who would take over Hulk's seat if they really did release him.

I'd be stunned if the "Russian Investor" was not Abramovich

According to reports, he's been released from his contract, but will be driving in the YDT for Sauber this week, so, I guess he's a freelancer.

Sirotkin is quite good, not spectacular but he's still young. Also, he's quite consistent-in his past 2 seasons in WSR3.5 and Auto GP, he's only had 2 retirements from 24 races.
