The Sauber group became a laughing stock last year when they announced their new team name, Stake F1 team Kick Sauber. They were brutally bashed from all angles and seeing the hostility on the web, they came up with a response and said that would announce a new name for their team on January 1st, 2024.

With 2024 having officially begun, the Sauber group has revealed the new name for their team and has set it as ‘Stake F1 team.’ All that they have done with their new name is take the last two words out and this has not really sat well with the fans of the F1 all over the world.

The fans of the pinnacle of motor racing are well-known for not shying away from stating their extreme opinions, and the same has happened in the case of the Sauber group. While the Stake F1 team does sound a lot better than their previous name, it has still not been able to please the fans.

Looking at the reaction of the fans, it is quite clear that they are not too pleased with the new name of the Sauber group’s team. Moreover, some of the fans have taken things a step too far by blatantly asking them to change their name once again and come up with something catchy.

Stake F1 team will have several eyes on them in 2024

While the Sauber group has decided on its new team name, they are going to be in the eyes of the public and the media throughout the 2024 F1 season for several reasons. First, because the new name has so much negativity surrounding it, people will be fascinated to see how their car will look with the new branding.

And secondly, both of their current drivers (Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu) F1 contracts are coming to a close at the end of this year. keeping all these things in view, the Stake F1 team will have several eyes glued on them during the record-breaking 24-race campaign.

Moreover, it has also come to light that the Stake F1 team name is going to stick for the 2024 and 2025 seasons. Because from 2026 onward Audi will take over and most probably, change the name of the team as per their liking. Audi is expected to make a mega entry into the sport in 2026.
