Sauber's fast man

The Sauber Petronas team played host at the weekend to Russ Wicks, the current propeller-driven water speed record holder, who in June 2000 recorded a speed of 205.494mph. Wicks is currently working on a new challenge to raise the outright water speed record to 400mph.

Wicks is also interested in racing and has driven Indy Racing League cars, although only in tests.
