Stake Sauber - Where will the team's name change in F1 this season?

Sauber has 'unleashed' a new identity for the upcoming F1 season but will be forced to change its name at multiple Grands Prix.

The Hinwil-based outfit is filling a two-year gap between its partnership with Alfa Romeo ending and the dawn of its journey as the Audi works entry from 2026 with an aggressive commercial strategy, with Stake and Kick taking naming rights for the team and chassis respectively.

But the Stake name will not be able to stand at a number of races across the upcoming campaign, with four countries on the calendar outlawing the promotion of gambling.

As with last season, where the Stake logos were replaced by Kick on the side of the C43, a change of identity will take place in Australia, Spain, Belgium and Qatar.

Speaking at the launch of the new C44, Team Representative Alessandro Alunni Bravi explained: "Last year, we alternated to different team names according to the different countries where we go racing.

"We will be fully compliant with all the local applicable laws and where Stake is permitted. So where gambling advertising is prohibited, we will use a different name.

"As last year, we have Kick as one of our most important partners - the car launch was streamed live on Kick.com, our chassis name is Kick Sauber, so where we will not be racing as Stake, we will use the second team name."
