  • Sauber C29 launched

    Sauber's Pedro de la Rosa and Kamui Koboyashi unveiled the C29 today in Valencia, Spain.

    The troubled team - still technically known as BMW Sauber - launched their 2010 contender devoid of any sponsor logos, deals still obviously a work-in-progress.

    The car, which is now powered by a Ferrari engine and gearbox, looks stunning in it's current white and black/grey livery. It has a striking raised nose, with front wing attaching at an angle, unlike any of its competitors that have been revealed so far.

    It also has a shark-fin that stops just short of the rear wing, which hangs just above a tightly packaged rear end.

    I have to say the car albeit missing it's final livery is my favourite so far. The engineers at Hinwil have done a terrific job turning the ugly duckling that was the F1.09 into the stunning C29.

    Hopefully by not having a KERS shaped distraction this year, the C29 will be quick out-of-the box, because the team could really use the boost to attract those vital sponsor dollars.

    I have to agree with you Rich, the C29 looks amazing. I especially like the struts connecting the front wing to the nose, Unique and independent from anything else we've seen so far!

    Think they should keep the livery as it is, simple but very effective.
