Sauber to launch new car on 2 February
3 January 2013 – Sauber will launch its C32 chassis on Saturday 2 February, with a presentation taking place at the team's Hinwil factory in Switzerland. As expected, the news confirms that the outfit will be present at the opening pre-season test in Jerez.
"The Sauber F1 Team have built on the strong foundations laid down during the 2012 season and, following a winter of hard work, we are nearly ready to present our new car," the team explained via an official press release issued on Thursday afternoon.
Nico Hülkenberg and Esteban Gutiérrez have replaced McLaren-bound Sergio Pérez and the now sidelined Kamui Kobayashi to form Sauber's 2013 line-up, with reigning Formula Renault 3.5 Champion Robin Frijns holding the test and reserve role.
The launch will be streamed via the official Sauber website at 12pm local time (GMT +1), with the unveiling and interviews lasting for approximately 45 minutes.
