Voices on the van der Garde case: & # 34; Drivers must be treated fairly & # 34;

S ergio Perez says it bluntly. He would like the Sauber v Giedo van der Garde case to strengthen drivers' rights. 'The teams have to respect the drivers and the contracts. We want to work, we want to have a career and we can expect fair treatment from our teams. This applies to every employee, not just to the driver.'

Der Mexicans think it is good that Giedo van der Garde is fighting for his rights: 'You have to make an example here. It's not just about Giedo. Some drivers are still waiting for parts of their salary. That too is not fair.'

First A license, then super license

Team colleague Nico Hülkenberg thinks the same way. 'The story is sad, just disappointing and not good for Formula 1. Instead of talking about the sport, we are discussing a court case. The focus should be on other topics before the first race. What happens to Giedo is not business conduct. You can't always take the problems this sport is in as an excuse. '

Giedo van der Garde's fight for his cockpit in Melbourne fails due to the lack of a super license. The Dutchman apparently slept because he applied for it to his association too late.

Hülkenberg explains the procedure: 'First I have to apply for an A license from my national sports authority the DMSB. When I have the license, I send it to the team, which then applies to the FIA ​​for the super license. I have to do this every year. The license costs a lot of money. '
