Clearly a photoshop of the below image:

I was caught out by a similar hoax in the Mercedes thread. Not again. Google Image Search is my friend.


Of course, I made the photoshop, read my text: "If the picture above is correct, the car will be awful"

I though if this is correct:

Than the car will be awful:

Sauber never copied Ferrari, they were always independant teams. You you compare bodywork, frontwing, rearwings and etc of both teams throughout the years, you'll see that they were always very different.

Yeah, sure. Very different :rolleyes:

That's a Ferrari 2003-GA (late spec) and a Sauber 2004 C23. The cars were pretty much identical.

Look at Sauber C23 and Ferrari F2002...

Humpback engine cover? And that livery? WHY. This thing clearly takes the cake (so far).

Like the black rims. The livery, bleh. It's rather uninspiring, like they just dipped the nose in black paint. They should at least copy the back and put a red line where the black and white meet near the cockpit.

Sauber exhausts mounted quite far forwards on the sidepods and blow over the rear bodywork, they seem quite neutral

Sauber curious taol to the engine cover, perhaps a tall cooling outlet?

Kudos to Sauber. It's bloody hard to create an uglier nose than the one on the Ferrari, but Sauber pulled out all the stops and managed it. Job well done.

Terrible livery to go with that awful nose. Not like we can analyse all that much else at this stage.

Rear looks really tight like last year's Williams, or is it just the livery? I hate the pancake nose tip.

Just spotted the Toro Rosso nose in the pitlane. It joins the stepped trend. Let's see the full car later on

My theory on the color was right. I figured it wouldn't be black, but rather their Grey color with white. I was correct, looks good to me! Even the nose is ok, Maybe they'll find a less pronounced solution before Australia.
