Sauber loses appeal in Gideo van der Garde case

The Supreme Court in Victoria has dismissed the appeal by Sauber handing victory to Giedo van der Garde.

The appeal followed a verdict in Giedo’s favor yesterday to allow the Dutchman to drive this weekend and for the rest of the 2015 season.

The main sticking point will be the superlicense van der Garde needs to participate and that is usually a multi-day process that the FIA follows with an application process that is the responsibility of the team.

One might think the team would approach van der Garde for a cash settlement but listening to Gideo, he wants to drive…now. Sauber has been ordered to pay van der Garde’s legal costs as well. Seems the team would have been far better to have handled this back in February.
