Bridgestone has been the soul manufacturer since Goodyear pulled out in 1997.

However, it is still unclear whether Sauber's top drivers, Mika Salo and Pedro Diniz, are leaving or who will replace them. The names of Olivier Panis, Enrique Bernoldi, Jenson Button and Nick Heidfeld have been reported as potential candidates.
