Keltenborn won't resign

Sauber F1 Team Principal Monisha Keltenborn has stated that she has no intention to resign as a result of the ongoing row with Giedo Van Der Garde.

The Dutch driver successfully took legal action against the Swiss based team in a Victoria Supreme Court who stated that the outfit had a legal obligation to hand Van Der Garde one of their two race seats for Sunday's Australian Grand Prix.

The team have since denied Van Der Garde the chance to drive the car with the FIA also stating that the Dutch driver will be unable to compete without a valid FIA Super License.

Keltenborn stated that the ongoing situation with Van Der Garde does not affect how the team operate and she has not considered resigning.

The judge hearing the case will make a decision on Saturday on whether or not to issue a warrant for Keltenborn's arrest for failure to comply with the court order as both Marcus Ericsson and Felipe Nasr were driving the C34 in Free Practice two on Friday.
