Sauber will no longer have a Swiss anthem in case of victory from 2026 onwards


April 2, 2024 10:26

Swiss Sauber fans in Formula 1 will have to get used to a new reality from 2026 onwards, the possible absence of the national anthem in the event of the team’s victory.

This is because Sauber, of Swiss origin, is in the process of being fully acquired by Audi from 2026, which in turn defined the German flag as the team’s symbol in the category. Therefore, Germany’s anthem would be played during the team’s victories, and not Switzerland’s, as is currently the case.

This change will officially apply from 2026, when Sauber will become Audi’s factory team.

Sauber, founded in 1993 by Swiss Peter Sauber, is headquartered in Hinwil, Switzerland. It is worth remembering that the team only won one victory in F1, in 2008, with Polish driver Robert Kubica at the Canadian GP. At the time, Sauber competed as BMW Sauber, but retained the Swiss flag.

The future Audi F1 team will have operations divided between Hinwil, in Switzerland, and Neuburg, in Germany.
