Sauber launch 2017 F1 auto and Mercedes absolutely love it

The car's design was started under previous technical director Mark Smith, who left the team in March past year, but its development will be led by his replacement Jorg Zander.

The vehicle looks superficially similar to the one used in 2016 but features the delta-shaped front wing, the lower, wider rear wing and bigger tyres. The new vehicle was launched online on Monday morning and will run during a filming day at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya this week. The floor area was increased from 1.8 to 2 meters which will allow the vehicle to increase downforce.

"Basically, big teams also have an advantage when it comes to major changes in the regulations".

As well as a slightly different body, the Swiss team have added a new blue, white and gold livery. New rules tend to bring the most diversity between auto designs, and each year, as widely accepted solutions emerge, designs tend to become closer together. "In total, this means more downforce, more grip and, as a result, faster lap times".

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

At one point, he was spraying obscene graffiti on homes and cars including a penis on a vehicle parked on the street. When officers arrived, the suspect was in the street and began shooting at the officers.

The front and rear wings are becoming wider.

With Jorg Zander coming on board to oversee development of the C36, though he has sounded caution about Sauber's chances in the context of its being a transition season, he is nonetheless positive that the known quantity of the engine and the focus on chassis development will reap rewards.

Despite the fact that Formula One and its teams will again enter new territory based on the new technical regulations and rules in 2017, the team's expectations are straight to the point. Although new rules can jumble things up at the top of the ranking, rule changes tend to favour larger teams.

Sauber has released the first images of its C36-Ferrari, which will be driven in 2017 by Marcus Ericsson and Pascal Werhlein. Thanks to the new regulations, the vehicle had to be developed entirely from scratch, representing a huge investment for a team which has been known to suffer financial difficulties in the past.
