Greater Noida: “It’s great that two of the 12 Team Principals are Indians or have roots in India... I’m very happy for Monisha (Kaltenborn) and I wish her the very best,” Vijay Mallya, looking much trimmer, told The Telegraph.
Mallya, the Sahara Force India Team Principal, was commenting on Monisha’s elevation at Sauber.
Monisha (who is an Austrian citizen married to a German) was earlier the CEO and became the Team Principal a few weeks ago. She’s the first woman to wear that hat in F1.
Mallya, incidentally, went over to the Sauber enclosure at the Buddh International Circuit and had a 15-minute tête-à-tête with Monisha.
That was on Saturday evening.
