Sauber, who turned 69 on Saturday, has announced that after twenty years at the helm of his Swiss team, he has handed over to F1's first female boss, Monisha Kaltenborn.

He sat down with his old friend Jordan, now a pundit on British television, in the Korea paddock on Saturday.

The Swiss newspaper Blick said Sauber drank a glass or Prosecco and smoked a Havana cigar, while Jordan drank tequila.

"I respect Peter as I did 20 years ago," Jordan is quoted as saying. "He was always the nice, dear, good-natured, honest boss -- and I was the complete opposite. A real bastard!

"That's probably why we always got on so well."
