Capito goes to Ford

JOST CAPITO, the chief operations officer of Sauber, has left the Swiss team and will shortly begin work as director of Ford Special Vehicle Engineering in Cologne.

The 42-year-old German worked with BMW Motorsport before switching to Porsche Motorsport, of which he became the head before moving on to Sauber to oversee the planned Sauber Petronas Engineering operation, which was designing a Formula 1 engine for the Malaysian oil company. Unfortunately there was not enough money to see that project through and after the engine was shelved Capito was transferred to run operations at Sauber.
