However, Kaltenborn believes that getting points on the board before the end of the season will do more than improve Sauber's finances.
She told Crash.net: "First of all from a morale perspective for the team, the frustration would go, which is definitely there and it would give a certain boost to the team. Financially of course it helps, one should not just consider a few million not being money; it's a lot of money.
"The higher you go the more significant these positions get, but yes it would be a positive sign towards the team and only help us go more in a positive direction."
Sauber's next opportunity to score points will be at the United States Grand Prix in Austin next month.
