Sauber eye 'regular' points with new C30
31 January 2011 – Peter Sauber has said his team will be looking to improve on eighth place in the FIA Formula One Constructors’ Championship this year and he wants them to be frequently challenging for positions inside the top-ten with the new C30, which was unveiled to the world’s media today in Valencia.
The Swiss-based outfit had a tough year in 2010, after BMW pulled out and Peter Sauber had to resume control, but despite those difficulties, he added that they now have a solid ‘business foundation’ for the coming year.
“We want to finish in the points regularly and clearly improve our position in the FIA Formula 1 Constructors’ World Championship,” he told GPUpdate.net when asked about the aim for 2011.
“2010 marked the 41st year of our company history and one of the most difficult. But we managed to overcome these difficulties in the second half of the season.
"We implemented some well-considered structural changes. The appointment of James Key as Technical Director already bore fruit last season, and he is now in charge of development of the Sauber C30-Ferrari
“[Also] at the same time, we have managed to secure our business foundation for the 2011 season. In these economically straitened times that is something we can be proud of too,” he added.
