    Vasseur called off Honda deal an hour into Sauber tenure
    Fred Vasseur's no-nonsense approach to being a motor racing team boss helped him carve out an ultra-successful career in the junior categories – and made him an obvious candidate when Sauber were after a new chief last year.

    Yet there is no better proof for how intense, determined and focused he can be in his job than the speed with which he got on with plotting an all new direction for the Swiss team within minutes of getting his feet under the desk on his first day.

    The boldest move of all – cancelling plans for Sauber to tie up with Honda – was top of his job list when he walked through the factory doors, and the wheels were set in motion within minutes of starting.

    "I joined on July 17 at 9am, and the meeting was at 10am," he smiled, in an interview with Motorsport.com reflecting on his return to the front line in F1.

    Actually that's good news. Enough with the arcaic misoginist setup, it's squallid and belongs to the past.

    I doubt they made much money or got much out of it either.

    Honestly, the most shocking thing about this is that FOM were able to make a change that quickly.

    Sorry, I don't think a lot of beautiful women holding signs is some massive misogynist problem. If that's the case, let hot men do it too...Equality.

    But Formula 1 has always been about glamour and beauty along with the other stuff, so this change seems like a knee-jerk overreaction to things.
