Best looking car so far, I like it, and the helmets as well.

Now watch them be super slow as I jinx them on the basis of praising their looks.

He may joke. But looking at this image it seems the only way the new radiators could fit.

I think this car did the most change to the previous design. It shaped well enough that it almost present itself to be an evolution. This could mean that it could beat any cars on track by the hands of Nico.
Sadly... Kamui is not there...

That's odd. When HRT had same livery everyone was like OMG SO UGLY. and now when Sauber has almost identical one, it is beautiful? How biased someone can be. Livery is horrible for god's sake. That livery would work well for a bit happier version of hearse

I thought the original HRT livery was quite nice actually. But they are subtly different. Changing the yellow for red makes all the difference to my eyes.

I have to say I don't understand the reasoning between Checo's accident at Monaco and the slimming of the sidepods. What do they mean? Surely not that because Checo survived the accident, Sauber now knows they can use less room in the sidepods?

Or was it the case (and they don't mention it) that the internal structure of the car was not deformed or damaged by the accident?

It was a joke more than anything else, hence the laughter after he said it.
Whatever makes a story...

\After the accident the car had the identical amount of mechanical/material equipment fit in the side mode, that`is squashed. Smaller side pods mean less air resistance so the car should go faster... not exactly! so MM should be joking...
I mean not exactly because broken car will not run first of all and secondly that side pods will not let cooling air through that is necessary to run engine. If you fill cooling air ducts with machinery the side pods will be smaller, but it will never cool engine in a sufficient way!!
I assume MM is only talking about in terms of wired inspiration, not learning how to pack the side pods from the accident...

Great car. Too bad they don't have the financial clout of the big teams. I wonder how good they could've been if they had Ferrari's budget.


You mean like having the backing of a manufacturer, like BMW? Maybe they never had a clean slate with which to produce the top car from the off, like 2009? Perhaps they didn't have enough time to focus on that car, like switching all their resources to 2009 after only 7 races in 2008?

They had a great chance to do a Brawn or a Red Bull but didn't, good higher midfield team but maybe not much more.
