Can a car be taller than the rear wing and roll hoop?

The Picture has nothing to do with the actual Car. Sauber uses this every Year.

"...and there, very much in flames, is Jacques Laffite's Ligier. That's obviously a turbo blaze, and of course, Laffite will be able to see that conflagration in his mirrors... he is coolly parking the car somewhere safe." Murray Walker, San Marino 1985

"Sauber's program for the 2010 Indy 500 Rookie of the Year is centered prepping de Silvestro to gain her Super License, which she'll need to take part in Grand Prix events. The tentative plan would see de Silvestro's private testing program immediately after the Chinese GP on April 20.
The goal is to conduct between eight and 10 days to prepare her for official testing at Barcelona after the Spanish GP. If all goes well in Spain, she'd qualify for her Super License, allowing de Silvestro to partake in Friday Grand Prix practice at one or more events later in the year.
With her Super License in hand, the door would be open for de Silvestro join Sauber (BELOW, LAT photo) in a race seat next year. News regarding the commercial support for the initiative is expected to be revealed in the coming weeks."

She may be "the one". She certainly held her own against Tony Kanaan last year when they were teammates.

She's the most talented girl I've ever seen racing. So unlike with Susie Wolf, I hope this works out.

Simona de Silvestro will shortly make her Formula 1 test debut.

The 25-year-old female Swiss driver, best known for her Indycar experience, recently became “affiliated” with the Ferrari-powered Sauber team.

It emerged early this week that she underwent a seat fitting at Sauber’s Hinwil factory, and Speed Week now reports that she will make her test debut at the end of this month.

The report said de Silvestro will drive a few-year-old Ferrari at the Italian marque’s Fiorano test track.

Another Sauber test driver, Russian teen Sergey Sirotkin, tested for the Swiss team in Bahrain earlier this week.

It is believed Sauber prioritized the test for Sirotkin so that he can obtain his mandatory super license and take part in Friday practice at Sochi later this year.

Linked with new Russian team backers, the 18-year-old managed the necessary 300 kilometers at a competitive pace.

“My shoes were too small,” said Sirotkin, “and it was pretty painful when I was braking. When we changed the shoes, it was still not the best and difficult to drive.

“It was not easy,” he added, “but I am glad we completed the 300kms.”
