BMW goes for broke
Engine: BMW V8
Team principal: Peter Sauber
F1 history: 2006-
2007 position: 2nd
Drivers' titles: 0
Constructors' titles: 0
BMW Sauber are continuing the steady progress that seems destined to lead to them being title contenders soon.
This low-key, purposeful team have made tangible steps forward every year since BMW took them over in 2006.
They started this season closer to the front than ever and have split the big two on occasions, even achieving a fortuitous win in Canada.
But there is a nagging sense that they have lost some of the ground on their rivals since then.
