Sauber F1 Team launches new Ferrari-powered C30 car

Article by Christian A., on February 2, 2011

Sauber F1 Team has launched its new C30 car on Monday, making it the 4th squad to reveal its 2011-spec challenger before the Valencia test. The new Ferrari-powered car has the same high-nose design that’s found on the Ferrari, Mercedes and Team Lotus challengers.

This car also gets a redesigned rear section. In comparison with its C29 predecessor, the new racer features more aggressive sidepods and a single mounting for its rear-wing (instead of double mounting), while also integrating a blown diffuser.

It was also confirmed that this car will be equipped with a Ferrari-developed Kinetic Energy Recovery System beginning with the season opening Bahrain Grand Prix.

Team owner Peter Sauber said that they want to “finish in the points regularly” as well as “clearly improve” their position in the FIA Formula 1 constructors' world championship. Sauber added that 2010, which marks the 41st year that the company has been in existence, has been “one of the most difficult.”

However, he insists that the team is now committed to progress. He said that the team was able to rise above its reliability problems in the second half of the season.

He also said that the team implemented several well-considered structural changes. James Key, who was named Technical Director, has achieved much and is currently in charge of development of the Sauber C30-Ferrari.

Key admitted that the development work on the new C30 is meant to eliminate the weak points of the C29 as well as to improve on the areas that were deficient last season.
