Sauber highlights the exchange problems

Peter Sauber has added to his voice to the worries being expressed by various Formula 1 teams about the team dropping value of the US dollar. The American currency has dropped 17% against the Euro this year and this is affecting the F1 teams who do most of their sponsorships in dollars.

"About 70% of our budget is in dollars," says Sauber, "so it is clearly a problem."

Sauber said that the team's budget for 2004 is in the region of $100m.
