First female F1 team principal makes her mark
YEONGAM, South Korea (AFP) - Asked about women in Formula One and most observers would point to the grid girls who pout and pose in short skirts before every race.
But the first female team principal in the 62-year history of the male-dominated sport says she hopes that her rise to prominence will change all that - cautioning that it was a long-term process.
"You have to deliver the same (as men) and be as good as anyone else. It can show to women out there that they can also come out on top and believe in yourself," Ms Monisha Kaltenborn told AFP at the Korean Grand Prix.
She became team principal at Sauber on Thursday with immediate effect after its founder, the highly respected Peter Sauber, decided to step down from day-to-day management.
