Peter Sauber has indicated he will move early to secure the Swiss team's current driver lineup for 2012.

The Hinwil based team's founder, principal and owner told Blick newspaper he is happy with Kamui Kobayashi alongside Mexican rookie Sergio Perez.

"We almost never talk about the future of our drivers," said Sauber. "What I am saying is that we are more than satisfied with our two drivers."

Blick said Sauber has learned from the past, when Felipe Massa moved to Ferrari after a strong season with the Swiss team in 2005, and when Kimi Raikkonen was snapped up by McLaren after his sterling Sauber debut in 2011.

"We want to exploit for ourselves the potential of these two young drivers," said Sauber.
