Sauber C31 Ferrari

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

I'm expecting a lot from this car, leading the mid-pack and challenging the top 5. The EBD hurt them but now its gone they should have most around them blown away, just need to fix the mechanical gremlins they had for the last 3 years maybe they could rectify this when they switch to pull-rod as I pray it doesn't get worse.

ooh could well be, looking at the bottom of the intake is curved and the 2011 one is flat and behind the drivers head looks more curved on the pic above compared to 2011 pics

From that picture I can tell one thing, No U Pods, look at the right hand side how the bodywork will flow onto the sidepods

Looks like C30 to me.

C30 has those quad supports for the air intake.

That is most likely expecially that make sense when you now that the team havo no so much money and top engineers....

I m totaly sure they will keep the base from c30 and for that reasons i m 120% sure that on the picture is basicaly base monoqcook c30 or slighty evolution of them!

Sauber always seat fits in the real chassis, so its safe to say that's the C31, and like allstruk said the air-box is different and by the steering wheel the chassis forms differently.. as if there is a v nose comes right to the end which wasn't on C30, it seems to be smoother also up there, looking at the old dry chassis you spot these things more easily.

go look at the pictures of the C30 in brazil it had a flat bottom to the airbox, Byronrhys picture is of the seat fitting for the C30 they were showing you that the airbox is the same shape as they used last season. the other picture im pretty sure its the C31 the whole shape is different
