Peter Sauber has named his team's CEO, Monisha Kaltenborn, as his successor when he steps down.

Though the 68-year-old still attends races, Kaltenborn is increasingly the face of the team, certainly in terms of the media.

Speaking to Der Sonntag, the Swiss admitted that retirement is very much on the cards, and though he's not yet certain when he will step down he does know who he will be handing the reigns to.

"I have always said that I will not be sitting on the pit-wall as a 70 year old," he said. "With certainty, my successor is Monisha Kaltenborn. That is for sure. When it happens is still open.

"She will be the first female team boss in Formula One history," he added. "She's been with us for 13 years, always with leading roles. I'm sure she will do the job very well."

Reminded that he stepped down as team boss when BMW bought his team, he insisted that next time around when he steps down it will be for good.

"I could not jump into the breach a second time," he said.
