Sauber C33 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.

That's the one, the release was a bit earlier for the media. Just two pictures - side and half-view. Sauber's site is overloaded at the moment.

The car is very spec model. Number of performance parts won't be in Jerez.

I think they have a step on the chassis and vanity panel to cover it. The chassis is too high!

Here you can see the vanity panel

just above the claro logo, there seems to be an intake to direct air towards the exhaust, probably for monkeyseat blowing.

that nose looks very beautifull actually btw

the 'ribbed/slotted' intake below the beginning of the OERLIKON logo is very interesting aswell

There has been some photoshopping on the main side of the side pods at the front. Look at the 2 hi-res pictures, they have blended over it with the grey colour, the reflections on the surface are not right, it looks very matt. In the picture at an angle the bottom part of a logo is still very slightly visible. Do they have a new sponsor they have not released yet, that is quite a big sponsor area there is it not?

I have photoshopped it to show the area with a handy green arrow to point out where the base of the logo can be seen.

I'm afraid it's there for turbo cooling...

Does anybody know what's inside the concrete block on springs in the background of the pictures?
Dear FIA, if you read this, please pm me for a redesign of the Technical Regulations to avoid finger nose shapes for 2016! :-)

What is going on on top of the engine cover? Looks like it has ribs or small canards of some sort. Can't see too well on the phone. Good looking car though!
