At 9:00hrs sharp, the moment had arrived: At the 'Feria de Valencia', the BMW Sauber F1 Team presented the new F1.07 for the 2007 season. Media representatives and guests from all over the world witnessed the unveiling of the car, which boasts several new features compared to last year's edition.
Following a brief welcome by moderator Jonathan Legard, it was the turn of the BMW Sauber F1.07 to take centre stage.
Some of the innovations in the BMW Sauber F1 Team's second challenger can be detected by the naked eye. The newly developed nose is substantially shorter and higher than the one on its successful predecessor, the BMW Sauber F1.06. The entry ducts for cooling air are larger and form part of the new cooling concept, which integrates better into the overall concept of the car and provides increased air flow.
The rear of the F1.07 is slimmer and lower. Due to stricter crash impact regulations, the rear crash-element is much bigger. Because of the higher position of the car's nose, the wishbones run downwards at a more significant angle than in the 2006 edition.
Following the Team Launch and the obligatory 'photo call' for the photographers, guests and journalists quickly set off to the 'Circuit de la Comunitat', where the BMW Sauber F1.07 will take tho the track for the very first time at 13:00hrs.
