Report: Kobayashi to join Sauber

Report: Kobayashi to join Sauber

Kamui Kobayashi will race for Sauber in the 2010 season according to a report in Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat.

The 23-year-old rookie impressed all and sundry when he turned out for Toyota in the final two races of the 2009 season, having replaced an injured Timo Glock.

It is believed that if Toyota had remained in the sport that Kobayashi would have signed on with the Japanese squad, but the manufacturer's withdrawal left the youngster without a seat.

However, latest reports indicate that Kobayashi will join Sauber but that his position will not be officially confirmed until the Swiss team have decided on his team-mate.
