Sauber Lose Another Chief Designer

Thursday June 21st, 2001

Sauber's chief designer Stephen Taylor will leave the Swiss outfit after less than two months with them, team boss Peter Sauber announced on Thursday.

"It is correct that Stephen will leave us for personal reasons," Sauber told a news conference ahead of Sunday's European Formula One Grand Prix. "We don't know when he will go at the moment."

Sauber said the team did not have their eyes on a replacement and was in no hurry to find one.

"We will see for another designer but not for the moment becase it makes no sense. The development of the new car, the C21, has already started." Taylor had joined the Hinwil-based outfit from McLaren following the departure of Argentine Sergio Rinland.

Rinland, who left the team back in February, was the designer of the successful C20 with which the team are enduring their best start of a season since they entered Formula One in 1993.

Britain's weekly Autosport magazine on Thursday referred to speculation that Taylor was returning to McLaren where he was being lined up as an eventual successor to Adrian Newey.
