The Sauber F1 Team have employed 23 year old, Tatiana Calderon, as their development driver for the 2017 season.

Originally from Columbia, Calderon has shot through fame in the last two years after finishing runner-up in the MRF Challenge Formula 2000 and then debuting to Formula 1’s popular support series, GP3, in 2016.

“We are very pleased to welcome Tatiana onboard to the Sauber family,” said Monisha Kaltenborn, Sauber’s Team Principal. “I am convinced that we can provide her lots in-depth motorsport know-how for her future career in racing.”

Calderon herself said she is “extremely happy to join the Sauber F1 Team,” and hopes to “benefit from its long experience.”

“I look forward to working with the team and learning as much as I can,” she also added.

This employment is a good sign for Sauber as monetary issues prevented them from adding the services of a young driver in 2016. This heavily affected the team as they were unable to complete the two in-season tests.

In essence, this partnership helps solidify Sauber’s future in Formula 1 – something that looked unlikely one year ago.

Tatiana Calderon will continue to compete in GP3 in 2017.
