That's so true. But during the past few seasons they havent really been able to develop their own car. The C21 and C22 were closely based on 2000's C20 which was one of the mose successful Saubers in recent years.

Thats the formula that worked up to the late 1990s. The thing that makes me not sure of this formula is that most cars nowadays are more tightly built. 40 years ago, most engines probably fit in any chassis since they didnt haven engine covers, but nowadays with more sophisticated integration between the entire package of the car, I cant even imagine two cars sharing simple things like tires or even steering wheels. Plus, teams can just hire spy shooters.
