Team operations, for now, will now be overseen by team manager Beat Zehnder and technical director Jorg Zander.

The team announced the departure of team principal Monisha Kaltenborn by mutual consent. The team stated that 'diverging views' regarding the Formula 1 team's future is the reason the two decided to part ways.

Her successor will be announced "shortly", and the team's operations in Baku are currently being handled by team manager Beat Zehnder and technical director Jorg Zander.

Chairman of the board, Pascal Picci said, "Longbow Finance SA regrets to announce that, by mutual consent and due to diverging views of the future of the company, Monisha Kaltenborn will leave her positions with the Sauber Group effective immediately. We thank her for many years of strong leadership, great passion for the Sauber F1 Team and wish her the very best for the future. Her successor will be announced shortly; in the meantime, we wish the team the best of luck in Azerbaijan.

Another statement released denied suggestions that one of the issues was her opposition to a desire to favour Marcus Ericsson over Pascal Wehrlein. "The owners and board of Sauber Motorsport AG take strong exception to speculative and widespread media reports today that our race drivers have not been, and are not being, treated equally. This is not only patently untrue, it would be contrary to the team's absolute and long-standing commitment to fair competition. These reports, attributed to anonymous 'sources', are highly detrimental to both Marcus Ericsson and Pascal Wehrlein as well as to the management and all staff of the Sauber F1 team."
