Sauber, the last team to launch their 2016 car has shown off pictures of the new car online today, ahead of its first test in Barcelona tomorrow.
An evolution of the C34, the new car retains the same branding as 2014 with drivers Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson retained for another season. Delayed due to the expected late start to the season, which was then brought forward meant the team decided to change their timetable and bring the old car to the first test. It will give them just four days with the new car before the start of the season.
Monisha Kaltenborn, the Team Principal at Sauber has a clear vision for them, “We want to clearly improve. Obviously, there’s a certain position we’d like to achieve. But, to start with, it’s important to become established in mid-field. Only then are we going to focus on individual positions.”
It was a difficult start to the 2015 season for Sauber, with a court case hanging over the opening weekend in Australia. A decent result came out of it, but with a settled driver line up, there should be no issues this season.
