Sauber launches 2017 Formula 1 contender

Sauber's 2017 F1 C36

Marcus Ericsson remains at the team for a third consecutive season, while Mercedes junior driver Pascal Wehrlein joins as his teammate.

53 year-old Zander came to Sauber on the back of two years as technical chief of Audi's World Endurance Championship programme, which proved to be hugely successful. With the new regulation changes this 2017, the Formula 1 playing field has been leveled, allowing even the smaller teams to have new opportunities.

To sum up, the auto will be able to produce more downforce, more grip resulting in faster lap times.

The official track debut of the new Sauber C36-Ferrari will take place on the first winter tests at the Circuit de Catalunya, Spain from 27 February to 2 March.

Sauber believe they will be able to make up for any loss of power performance through having a supremely aerodynamic chassis, and so do not believe they will fall into the same trap, only time will tell on that front. The alterations were made to increase the downforce to an estimated 30 percent more.

"The width of the front tyres has increased from 245 to 305 mm, that of the rear tyres from 325 to 405 mm".

The C36 provides the first indicators of how teams will approach the significant rule modifications introduced this year focused on developing faster, more dramatic cars. There is not a single part that could be adopted from its C35 predecessor. The auto is expected to complete a filming day ahead of the first test, but will run for the first time in official testing on February 27.

Referring to the 2016-spec engine, he described it as "a tried and tested system with higher durability to begin with".

Further, Zander added that Being able to get started early and defining the engine environment was an advantage because the team [Sauber] was familiar with the engine and the transmission as well as the cooling requirements the engine entailed.
