Andreas Seidl joins Sauber as CEO

December 13, 2022

Andreas Seidl is set to leave British Formula One team McLaren and will be replacing Frédéric Vasseur as Sauber Motorsport’s CEO. 

The German, who joined McLaren in 2019 and served as their Team Principal, has previously also worked with BMW’s Formula One project. 

On leaving McLaren, Seidl stated:

I joined McLaren in 2019 and have really enjoyed working with Zak and the team. We have achieved some good results, and I will always have fond memories, with Monza being a personal and career highlight. The team is on a great trajectory, and I would like to thank everyone for their support, trust and commitment. Thanks to Zak and the shareholders for their understanding of my personal decision to move on to another challenge. I wish Andrea and the team all the best for the future.

Alfa Romeo, though, are yet to announce who will replace Frédéric Vasseur as the Team Principal but have confirmed that the appointment of a new Team Principal will be made soon. 

Andreas Seidl, CEO of Sauber Group, commented:

It is great to join the Sauber Group from January: this is a team with a rich history in Formula One and an organisation I know really well from my time working and living in Hinwil for four years. I can’t wait to join the team and work with all the colleagues at the Sauber Group on the ambitious goals we have set together. I want to thank Finn Rausing and everyone at the Sauber Group for their choice: I am looking forward to repaying their trust with my work.

Finn Rausing, Sauber Holding AG Chairman of the Board of Directors, said:

It is an immense pleasure to welcome Andreas Seidl back to Hinwil as CEO of the Sauber Group. Andreas’ experience is second to none and he brings to Sauber Group a clear understanding of what is required to achieve sustained success. He takes over a company on an upward path and he shares our commitment to keeping our organisation growing: I look forward to many years of success together.
