Sauber has a BMW deal

Sir Frank Williams says that BMW will supply Sauber with customer engines in 2006. The Swiss team has decided that it no longer wants to meet the cost of a Ferrari engine. BMW has worked with Williams on an exclusive basis in recent years but expanding to meet the demand is a good idea for BMW as the men in Munich believe that the deal will give Williams an incentive to produce better results. Whether Sauber is capable of beating Williams is another matter.
