    Peter Sauber has come out in anger over the failure of the Ferrari gearbox after both of his cars were forced to retire in Monza due to the system failing.

    "It was like going back to formula one's stone age," Sauber told Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.
    The Sauber team are in close championship-battle with Force India and Toro Rosso, and Sauber has said the double-failure had cost the Hinwell-based squad valuable points.

    Failures of this magnitude are becoming increasingly rare within the sport and Sauber has insisted that the defect had given their rivals a huge advantage as they head into the final six races of the season.

    Lots of slamming going on today.

    But then if both cars DNF with the same gearbox failure, you are going to look at who supplies the gearbox first.
  5. Sauber should be changing supplier, last year they seemed to be retiring every race due to engine failure now this.It's clear they don't care much about there customers as failures of any kind are a rare sight in current spec.
